Powerful, deep and complex Malbec from the talented 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: The Q Malbec offers a lovely deep purple colour, with bluish hues. Intense red and black fruits aromas, such as blackberries and blueberry jelly. French oak aging provides tobacco and chocolate hints. Soft and silky entry, great structure, acidity that provides freshness and mineral texture. Long finish.
