2017 - Zorzal Wines, founded in 2007 by the Michelini brothers, is a beacon of innovative winemaking situated in the Uco Valley, Argentina. Positioned at an impressive altitude of 1,500 meters above sea level, the winery is renowned for its pioneering approach to viticulture and winemaking. Emphasizing minimal intervention, Zorzal utilizes concrete eggs for fermentation to preserve the purity and distinctiveness of the fruit. This approach is part of their broader commitment to expressing the unique terroir of their high-altitude vineyards, which are managed with a focus on sustainability and environmental respect.

The 2017 Zorzal Eggo Cabernet Franc is a standout expression of this philosophy. This wine is characterized by its intense vibrancy and depth, reflecting the cool climate of the Uco Valley. Fermented and aged in concrete eggs to enhance its fruit purity and terroir-driven profile, it showcases prominent flavors of red and black fruits, combined with subtle herbal notes and a hint of spice, underpinned by firm tannins and a crisp acidity. This structured yet elegant Cabernet Franc pairs beautifully with rich meats like lamb or beef, and its complexity is also well-suited to complement earthy dishes such as mushroom risotto. The Eggo Cabernet Franc not only exemplifies Zorzal’s commitment to quality but also their innovative edge in modern winemaking.
