FAMILIA ZUCCARDI Q CABERNET SAUVIGNON 

Sebastian Zuccardi, the grandson of the founder, is now in charge at this trailblazing family winery. Rapidly establishing himself as one of the great winemaking talents of Argentina, he is determined to alter the world's perception of Malbec and evolve our understanding of what Mendoza has to offer. He talks of "not seeking perfect wines, but those that express the place, the region". His vision is not altitude, it is terroir: terroir honed and shaped by the icy Andes flood waters whose power brought the rocks and boulders that now form the sub-soils of many of the very best vineyards. Frequently pictured waist-deep in a muddy hole in one of these vineyards, these rocks not only form part of the vineyard but in their new winery, they form the building and the fermentation vessels. At the forefront of the movement towards greater fruit purity, Sebastian's wines are the most convincing argument for the use of concrete fermentation and ageing vessels and, as a result, for the movement towards a greater understanding of the potential of Malbec and Argentina in general. Though we may be a little biased, it is fair to say that Sebastian is amongst the most influential young winemakers on the planet.

The grapes used in this wine come from 2 sites in the Uco Valley: Viñedos de Gualtallary, at an altitude of 1250M above sea level and La Consulta, at 1100M above sea level. The soils are sandy loam.

Grapes are selected, destemmed and gently crushed before a classic fermentation using indigenous yeast with gentle extraction by delestage and pigeage. The juice is macerated on the skins for 25 days then aged in new French oak barrels for 25 months.

Intense purple with aromas of blueberry and cassis. Rich chocolate, coffee, and herbs blend perfectly with big and bold blackberries, cassis, cherries and blueberries. Best with steak
