Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A very pretty light pink colour for this pink wine crafted from Malbec and Pinot Noir. Aromas of cherry blossom, white cherry, and just a touch of overripe strawberry. Extra dry with nice minerality and crisp acidity. Nicely done dry rose, best with food. Serve with seafood, fried chicken, and vegetarian dishes.
From the Uco Valley, Mendoza, Susana Balbo Signature 2018 rosé is a medium-bodied, fresh and zesty blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Pinot Noir wine grapes. Beautifully balanced with wild red berries, red cherry and dried herbs flavours on the palate matched with crisp acidity. Susana Balbo graduated with honours in 1981 and has twice been named "Woman Entrepreneur of the Year" by the Argentine Organization of Businesswomen. - Community Wine Reviews
