Intense aromatic Torrontes crafted by the Zuccardi winery
Sebastian Zuccardi, grandson of the founder, is now in charge at this trailblazing family winery. Rapidly establishing himself as one of the great winemaking talents of Argentina, he is determined to alter the world's perception of Malbec and evolve our understanding of what Mendoza has to offer. He talks of "not seeking perfect wines, but those that express the place, the region". The combination of multiple microclimates in their vineyards - Piedra Infinita, Canal Uco, Los Membrillos, Vista Flores, San Pablo, Santa Rosa combined with varying altitudes, types of soil and the care of the vineyard, results in multiple terroirs.
Tasting Note: Intense yellow colour with silver hues. A delicate and intense nose, full of white flowers and citric fruits. Notes of orange peel and oregano. This wine is well structured and has lively acidity and very aromtaic. A delicate but long finish.
