BACKGROUND
Father/daughter winemaking team, Mike and Natalie, have made several rosés in the past, but they were bottled under the Spokane Blush label. They have wanted to do this for some time but didn’t because they lacked a consistent source of red grapes to devote to a Rosé program. That has changed as Mike and Natalie have expanded their grape contracts with vineyards in the Ancient Lakes AVA to include additional tonnages of both Malbec and Merlot.

SOURCING
100% Malbec, Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley, Familigia Vineyard

WINEMAKING
For this vintage, the berries were really heavy so the amount of juice per berry was higher than normal. The juice was then left on the skins for 3 hours to get a bit of color. Mike and Natalie then fermented the wine as they would their white wines; cold fermentation, which is around 45-50 degrees F.

WINEMAKERS
Mike Conway and Natalie Conway-Barnes

TASTING NOTES
This 2019 Rosé of Malbec has all the wonderful varietal flavors of a Malbec, but in a deliciously, light, and fruity dry Rosé. It opens up with aromas of ripe red berries, watermelon, and rose hips. This well-structured wine entices your tongue with flavors of melon, raspberries and minerals, while ending with black cherry nuances and a crisp ruby red grapefruit.

FOOD PAIRING
This wine provides an ideal accompaniment to pork, chicken, and lighter meals or picnic fare, such as Ellena’s Street Cod Tacos recipe available online at www.latahcreek.com/recipes.
