Zorzal Wines Eggo Tinto De Tiza Malbec
Argentinian, wine maker Juan Michelini visited our store yesterday, one half of the Zorzal Wines team from Uco Valley in Argentina. He showed us an array of wines including this gorgeous 95 point score from Robert parker Malbec –
“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).
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” – Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker.com
