Christmas in a bottle!
Argentina has almost made the Malbec grape its own and on this evidence it's not difficult to see why. A port style wine, red purple colour of medium intensity, with light brown hues due to its ageing. Immensely concentrated, ripe plums, black fruits marmalade, dried figs and nuts. A rich, complex wine with final spicy notes like cinnamon, toasted almonds and leather.
Grapes: 100% Malbec
Food Match: Chocolate, Cheese board
Zuccardi combines forward thinking with a deeply rooted wine culture to craft wines of unique quality and identity. At the heart of this family winery is the drive to continually improve and with Sebastian Zuccardi heading up their 'Innovation and Experimentation' program, they are literally taking quality to new heights. After many months of building and many years of planning the breathtaking new winery, in Altamira in the Uco Valley, is all but complete. At 1100 metres above sea level with the Andes as it's stunning backdrop, a new chapter in the history of Zuccardi is beginning. This is one of the most exciting producers to work with. Their understanding of the soils and terroirs of the Uco Valley is reflected in their beautifully expressive wines.
