2016 Zorzal Eggo Tinto de Tiza (750ml)

Malbec from Tupungato, Mendoza, Argentina

95WA

The incredible 2016 Eggo Tinto de Tiza was cropped from one of the coolest years in recent times, which provided a slow ripening of the grapes and resulted in wines with higher natural acidity. This wine is now exclusively Malbec from Gualtallary (it used to have some Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon before). It fermented with 10% full clusters and indigenous yeasts in egg-shaped concrete vats, where the wine matured for ten months. It's super aromatic, with notes of thyme, oregano, spices and something earthy, like the countryside after the rain. It's young and has an explosive, vibrant palate with electric acidity and chalky tannins. 2016 could very well be the finest vintage to date, one of those vintages that will be legendary. This is just unbelievable for the price. 35,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2017.

95 points, Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate (Issue # 237 - Jun 2018)
