Weekly Wine Deal: 2018 Zorzal Malbec Terroir Unico
Regular Retail: $13.99
Deal Price: $10.99 a bottle or an additional 10% off a case
Brothers Gerardo Matias and Juan Pablo Michelini founded their Zorzal winery in the highlands of the Gualtallary, a subregion of the Uco Valley, 130miles south of Mendoza and perched at 4800 feet above sea level. This boutique winery has 70 hectares of vines surrounding their estate planted on a mix of sand, stones and granitic limestone. All their grapes are hand harvested earlier in the season than most producers to retain the freshness and complexities of their unique terroir. They use a blend of concrete tanks, concrete eggs, French barrels and larger French oak foudres to maximize the wines aging potential without masking in the nuances that the Gualtallary region provides. Zorzal is a practicing organic and sustainable winery and definitely a place you should keep your eye on. You can start this journey by grabbing a few bottles our email deal this week, the Robert Parker 91 point rated 2018 Zorzal Malbec Terroir Unico.
The Zorzal Malbec Terroir Unico undergoes a 15 day maceration and is aged in concrete tank prior to bottling. It is that neutral container that allows this tasty wine to explode in the glass, displaying all that is great about the Malbec grape. The wine has a vibrant, blood red color in the glass with a fresh nose of black cherry, blackberry and wild raspberry fruits framed by classic cocoa, spice and fresh herbs. On the palate, the wine really sings with fresh fruit character, backed by a savory minerality, velvety tannins, spice and dry finish. An absolute workhorse of a wine to enjoy whenever because it will definitely not disappoint. Put this up with your holiday prime rib, roasted squab, steak au poivre, Chimichurri steak or sweet breads. Cheers.
