2015 Q Malbec, Zuccardi, Valle de Uco, Argentina
"The 2015 Malbec Q is sourced from Altamira, Chacayes and Vista Flores in the Valle de Uco, the first year produced exclusively in the new winery. They used some 30% full clusters to ferment in cement vats (without epoxy), with 30% of the wine aged in used 500-liter oak barrels and the rest was kept in cement vats until blending and bottling. There is good ripeness and depth here, a mixture of red and black fruit with some spiciness and hints of rockrose and wild herbs. The palate is medium-bodied, with very nice balance, fine-grained tannins and very good length. It finishes dry with a hit of austerity. None of these wines show any oak." Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate Dec 2016.
Zuccardi is one of the top wineries in Argentina combining innovation with a deeply rooted wine culture to craft wines of quality and a unique identity. At the heart of this family winery is the drive to continually improve. The Q Malbec epitomizes this philosophy.
