Zorzal Terroir Unico Malbec 2015

$350

Grape: 100% Malbec

Region: Tupungato Valley, Mendoza, Argentina

You’ll taste/smell: This Malbec sets itself apart primarily because it lacks the abundance of oak one typically finds in Mendoza. In fact, it’s a very balanced wine – pleasant both aromatically and on the palate. Cherry, pepper, nutmeg and tobacco notes. 

Good to have it with: a steak dinner, vacio cut and a baked potato, it really goes well with any meal. This wine can get better on the second night.

Best to have it: 60-65 ºF, 15-18ºC

Description

Deep, shining red color with mineral aromas, tobacco, and a leathery texture. A strong evidence of calcareous soils, such as chalk. The tasting notes are very fresh on entry, with great volume and texture. The tannins are somewhat edgy and the finish is a long one.

The Zorzal Vineyards are located in Gualtallary, Tupungato, at 1350 meters above sea level. The soil is stony – sandy, very calcareous. In this area, the maturation of the grape oscillates between thermal amplitudes of 15 – 18 ° C difference between day and night.

Like the Zorzal Sauvignon Blanc, this Malbec is made based on three distinct harvest seasons. A cold maceration of 15 days is performed to intensify the fresh fruit and then fermented separately with indigenous yeasts with a maximum temperature of 28 ° C. These wines are aged in unique concrete egg- shaped barrels.

Alcohol Grade: 13.8%

Aging Capacity: 5 years

Size: 750 ml
