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 grapes are grown in a high altitude, drip irrigated single vineyard in Tupungato,
Gualtallary, in the outstanding vine-growing area of the Uco Valley. Located at 1,350
metres above sea-level, Gualtallary is the highest vine-growing zone in the Province of
Mendoza, situated at the foot of the Tupungato volcano. 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 while retaining refreshing
balance. The cool climate and white chalky soil, impart great structure and a delicious
acidity to the wine.
Winemaking
The grapes were gently pressed and transferred to the cement eggs; 50% of the fruit
was vinified with skin contact. Fermentation started naturally with native yeasts at
temperatures of between 18 to 21°C. When fermentation was complete, a partial
malolactic conversion took place. The wine was then left in the same cement eggs for
nine months, without separating it from the lees, which generated volume on the
palate. It was bottled directly from the cement egg. The cement egg significantly helps
with the structuring and stabilisation of the wine, through the natural movements that
are created by this shape.
Tasting Note
