Viu Manent Rosé Malbec Reserva

Viu Manent Rosé Malbec Reserva


  • One of the only Malbec Rosé wines you’ll find in Chile, Provence style color.
  • The grapes for this wine come from Viu Manent’s  San Carlos vineyard in the heart of the Colchagua Valley.

Varietal Composition: 100% Malbec

Elaboration: The grapes were destemmed and pressed without maceration. The juice was drained and decanted for 36–48 hours at 10ºC and then fermented in stainless steel tanks at 14º–18ºC. to improve its integration and volume. It was lightly filtered prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes:  Very light pink in color with intense primary aromas of fresh red fruits with a hint of white flowers. The palate is youthful, fresh, and fruity with refreshing acidity and a pleasing finish.




After working as a wine merchant alongside his father and brother since the 1930’s, Miguel Viu Manent made the decision to branch out on his own in 1965, purchasing a historic vineyard and winery in Chile’s Colchagua Valley.  The estate was and still is one of the most well-exposed sites in the region, and it included 150 hectares of pre-phylloxera massal selections from France.

This company provides us with wines we consider the best value wines in the country (see “Reserva line), forward/experimental options (see “Secreto” line), some of the most solid “under $20” varietal wines you’ll find anywhere in the world (see “Gran Reserva” line), site specific/terroir driven releases (see “Single Vineyard” wines), and most famously the iconic “Viu 1.”  Malbec is clearly the house specialty here – Viu Manent was the first Chilean winery to bottle, label, and market Malbec, and they’ve for years been Chile’s Malbec leaders both in terms of accolades and quantity produced.

After nearly 100 years this firm is still family owned and operated (a rarity in Chile, especially for a winery of this size), all farming is certified sustainable, and two of Chile’s top names consult with the winery on a permanent basis – Roberto Pizarro (vineyard management) and Paul Hobbs (winemaking).
