Zuccardi ‘Corte G Uco Uco’ Malbec/Cabernet Franc

£18.50 / per bottle

Tasting Notes

This wine was made to celebrate how well both Malbec and Cabernet Franc blend together. The Cabernet Franc comes from La Consulta, whilst the Malbec comes from old vines in Vista Flores. Blended in equal measure, this is a fresh and elegant wine with a zippy finish.

La Consulta, San Carlos, Uco Valley, Mendoza

Crossing the Rio Tunuyan, we enter into the most southern of the 3 departments, San Carlos. La Consulta’s name derives from the place that Genaral San Martin consulted with the Pehuenches Indians as to the best route over the Andes into Chile, thus liberating them from the Spanish. La Consulta is home to most of the old vineyards in the Uco Valley, having been kept despite the vine-pull programme in the 1980’s, where many hectares were lost to growing tomatoes. The wines here are rich and opulent, with good natural acidity and packed with black fruits, especially blueberries and powerful violet aromas.
