Zuccardi Apelacion Vista Flores Malbec, La Aricole Winery, Mendoza, Argentina 2018
100% Malbec with some concrete and oak aging. Selection of bunches. Tanks filled by gravity. Fermented with indigenous yeast.
This dry red wine has a purple colour, with bluish hues. Intense red fruits and flowers aromas, such as roses and violets. Herbal notes. Soft and silky entry, great structure, acidity that provides freshness and mineral texture. Long finish.
"Medium+ intensity nose has a lovely dark berry, blackberry and black cherry core surrounded by stony mineral and black pepper spice aromas. It is medium-full bodied on the palate with more succulent dark berry and pepper spice flavours flecked with stony minerals and hints of purple fruits. Spicy on the mid-palate with fresh and vibrant acids, while the tannins are gritty and a bit tight at the moment. Juicy and long on the finish with with stony mineral, dark berry, and violet notes. A lovely Malbec that should improve in 2 years and enjoyed over the next 5-6 years." Score: 91 pts Winepickers.com
