Zorzal Eggo Filoso Tupungato Pinot Noir 2018

A fresh and light-bodied Pinot Noir defined by the chalky
soil of its origin, vibrant and sharp on the palate giving rise
to its name of Filoso (sharp in Spanish).
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.
Vintage
2018 was another warm vintage, but this year is characterised as a year of balance.
The yields returned to average after a positive growth cycle under good weather
conditions. The wines are harmonious, with good maturity balanced by excellent,
stable acidity.
Vineyard
The grapes are grown in a specifically limey patch of a plot in a drip irrigated single
vineyard in Tupungato, Gualtallary. It is located in one of Argentina's most outstanding
vine growing valleys: the Uco Valley. Gualtallary is situated at 1,350 metres above sealevel in the highest vine growing zone at the foot of Tupungato volcano, one of the
highest peaks in the Andes. This 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 17°C, creating long, slow ripening
periods, concentrating the flavours in the fruit with balancing acidity.
Winemaking
The fruit was grown in a single vineyard. Carefully selected, whole grapes with their
stalks were placed in the cement egg, without crushing, in order to create wholebunch fermentation with natural yeast. Vinified using minimal intervention, once
fermentation was complete, the grapes were gently pressed and the extracted press
wine was combined with the free-run wine. It was then matured for nine months in the
3,000 litre concrete egg. Bottling took place directly from the egg.
Tasting Note
An intense Pinot Noir, in which the calcareous terroir is perfectly distinct with aromas of
gunpowder, graphite and chalk. On the palate it has an incredible texture, juicy red
fruits and acidity, from which it gained its name of Filoso (sharp) in Spanish.
