A downright delicious Chardonnay with pure fruit and vibrant acidity
In 1950 Alberto Zuccardi moved to Mendoza and began experimenting with irrigation systems for agriculture.
This experimentation led to him planting a vineyard in the Maipu region east of Mendoza City, with the goal of demonstrating his irrigation system. This was the start of a family business that has lasted three generations and has been a pioneering force in the world of wine in Mendoza.
Familia Zuccardi has made significant changes in how they make their Zuccardi Q Chardonnay. In the past we were never very big fans of the wine's style, but in the last several vintages, we have noticed that winemaker Sebastian Zuccardi has re-formulated his regimen for making this wine. This new take is on full display with the 2015 Zuccardi Q Chardonnay. This is all about engaging fruit purity, making it lip smacking delicious.
No new oak or malolactic fermentation was used, creating a gorgeous and vivacious flavor profile, clean with excellent acidity that allows the wine to maintain freshness and vibrancy. As good as it is on its own this will sing with food and will keep you coming back for another glass. We are offering this impressive Argentine Chardonnay for $16.99 and $15.29 on a six bottle or more purchase. Solid reviews from both the Wine Advocate and James Suckling tells us that Zuccardi's new direction has really paid off. This is quite impressive and as good as it is now, it will age beautifully over the next couple of years.
