Shiraz-Malbec Villa Vieja, La Agricola, Mendoza, Argentina 2019
Zuccardi family, La Agricola, Mendoza
Based at the Santa Rosa Estate, situated 85 km east of Mendoza City, the well-known Zuccardi family produce entry level, fruit driven wines that offer great value for money. Headed by Jose Alberto Zuccardi, the family team tend to vineyards which are almost desert-like, experiencing 350 days of sunshine a year. Irrigation is provided by melt water from the nearby Andes, allowing the family to produce wonderfully fresh and tender fruit, ensuring all of their wines are packed with fruity flavour
A full, meaty wine with lots of spicy plum fruit and soft tannins providing the structure. Nice weight and good length in this perfect blend of Malbec and Shiraz.
