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: Zuccardi’s innovation help to drive the industry forward and his new release from lower yielding vineyards is a great blend of peachy viognier and ripe, citrussy, rounded Chardonnay. This is a lively, fresh blend with yellow green colour, flavours of pineapple, white peaches, apricot and lime. It is creamy and elegant. A beautifully crafted wine.
