2016 Zorzal Gran Terroir Malbec (750ml)

Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina


A very blueberry-themed nose that also features violets and lots of lavender. Granite, slate and other crushed stones. Medium-to-full body, lots of fine, elegant tannins, racy acidity and a medium-chewy finish. Drink now or hold.

They have been progressively reducing the oak, and the 2016 Gran Terroir Malbec matured in third, fourth and fifth use French oak barrels for 15 months. 2016 seems to be a great vintage in the high-altitude parts of the Valle de Uco, and these grapes from Gualtallary seem to have achieved perfect ripeness while keeping lively freshness. The wine is produced in a transparent style, with little oak and nice balance. This is a very nice representation of the place, grape and year at an unbeatable price. 8,900 bottles were filled in December 2017.
