This is another interesting one. Malbec usually makes a gritty, medium-to-full bodied red wine. So when you turn it into a sparkling wine, you’d think it might be heavy but this was refreshing and even lighter than the sparkling Shiraz I spoke about the other day.
Ernest Catena’s Misterio is a coppery rosé, whereas the sparkling Shiraz was a deep purple. Dry, but good fruit and made from 85% Malbec and 15% Pinot Noir. Was fantastic with the veggie and mildly spicy chimicurri we had on grilled trout. Even better pairing was the Andes backdrop.
And another under $20 ($19.99 to be exact)! Grab some here.
