wine of the week

2013 Zorzal, Terroir Unico, Malbec, Gualtallary -Tupungato, Argentina

zorzal terroir_unico_mal

When I visited Argentina in 2007, this winery was just getting built. We did the tasting on the railing, the only place suitable in an area still under construction. Looking outside, we were clearly in a wild, secluded area. The air was filled with a mix of earthy and dry herb floral aromas. The first couple of sips were equally intriguing. Thanks to the high altitude of the Uco Valley vineyards and the poor soil; there was a constant freshness, minerality and dry herb quality throughout the wines.  This Malbec is exactly that. Expect an elegant, savoury wine with great acidity and beautiful violets, red plums and lavender notes. A refreshing take on Malbec. Asado por favor! – MB

$17.49 (SKU# 864827) Available at BC Liquor Stores.
