There is plenty of dull and uninteresting rosé wines around, and then there are some that stand out for their quality. At Vina Maquis in Colchagua in Chile, their aim is to make a rosé wine of top quality. They harvest the malbec grapes one month earlier than the “normal” red wine harvest. They also use some cabernet franc. They have also chosen grapes from the coolest parts of the vineyard. Their rosé is made without any technical correction, no acidification, not colour correction, no alcohol adjustment (enrichment / chaptalisation).
