Malbec * 75cl * 14.5% ABV * Uco Valley, Argentina
The Zuccardi winery was originally established (by an engineer, at that!) to showcase the fantastic natural irrigation systems of the Uco Valley. Since its inception in 1963, however, it has proved to become one of Argentina's most successful producers. Sourced from meticulously worked, high altitude vineyards in Vista Flores, this is a very deep purple in hue with a heady nose of exotic spices and freshly squeezed berry fruit. This displays ripe tannins, great acidity and a mineral texture. Drink alongside roast rib of beef.
