Edgy, big and layered, this intensely flavoured wine is
marked by flavours of blood orange and wild herbs
against a background of ripe black fruits.
Producer Note
Zorzal is an Argentinian boutique winery which has been dedicated to the
production of high quality wines since 2008 and is located at the highest point of the
Uco Valley. Hailed as one of the most exclusive and well-regarded areas for
viticulture in Argentina, the terroir is revealed in the Zorzal wines through a respectful,
non invasive winemaking process that puts austerity before exuberance and fruit
before wood. The wines have rapidly gained international recognition. Founded by
the Michelini brothers, who are outstanding in their passionate leadership in the
vineyards and winery, this highly regarded winemaking duo have become
renowned as the trendsetters of the Argentinian winemaking scene.
Vineyard
The seven to 10 year old espalier trained vines are grown in a high altitude, drip
irrigated vineyard in Gualtallary. Gualtallary is located in one of Argentina's most
outstanding vine growing valleys: the Uco Valley and is situated at 1,350 metres
above sea level. This is one of the highest vine growing zones in the Province of
Mendoza, sitting at the foot of the Tupungato volcano- one of the highest peaks in
the Andes. The zone is characterised by its combination of altitude, alluvial soils,
sunny days, low rainfall and wide temperature ranges. The diurnal temperatures
here oscillate between 35°C and 20°C, creating long, slow ripening periods,
concentrating the flavours in the fruit. This combination of cool climate and very
specific white chalky soil, gives the wine great structure and a delicious acidity.
Winemaking
The alcoholic and malolactic fermentations took place in egg-shaped containers
made of cement. Their shape helps to keep the liquid to move constantly, so the
temperature is more consistent and the lees remain constantly in suspension. The
resulting wine achieves a greater character and volume on the palate. Following the
fermentation, the wine was aged for 12 months in the same container, with a view to
conserving its pure, authentic character, without interference from any other
influence such oak from another terroir.
Tasting Note
A deep, intense and complex example of a Gualtallary Malbec, with the typical
aromas of chalk, flint, and mineral tones. Structured and voluminous on the palate
with a silky texture, this is poised and direct, with a refreshing quality.
Serving Suggestion
This is a gastronomic wine which pairs beautifully with red meats, pasta and rabbit.
