AN EXTREME VALUE!!- STEVE

"The juicy and fruit-driven 2017 Malbec Serie A was produced with grapes from the Valle de Uco, and it fermented in concrete and aged in concrete, stainless steel and used barriques. It's serious and balanced, really impressive for the price. It has refined tannins and a chalky texture with no evident oak, with moderate ripeness and aromas of herbs and flowers. 500,000 bottles produced.

Zuccardi keeps going from strength to strength and is doing incredible work in the vineyards. They have bought some 35 hectares of land in Gualtallary and are going to plant plots there. The wines keep reflecting the incredible R+D work they do. The Aluvional and PolĂ­gonos wines are not only superb, they also have an incredible price for the quality and character they deliver. And the top-of-the-range wines are better than ever, even in a challenging year like 2015. Zuccardi is clearly among the top wineries of the country-and improving each year. Bravo!" (WA)
