Zuccardi is rapidly becoming our favourite producer of great value wines from Argentina. Although this country is more known for its Malbecs, we have recently discovered other varieties from their range which also get us excited, none more so than this excellent Cabernet Sauvignon.

Grown at an elevation of c. 1,100 metres the wine is cool and fresh with notes of tobacco, cedar wood, wild berries and blackcurrant

The Country

Argentina Wines

Argentina

Argentina has established its reputation in the wine world based on its superb Malbecs, but is far from being a one trick pony. It is a country with wide variations in climate from the high altitude sites of Salta, some now exceeding 3,000 metres, to the valleys of Mendoza where 15% ABV Malbecs are not uncommon.

The cooler regions are making some interesting wines from Cabernet Franc, and if there were a candidate for the country's flagship white variety, the highly aromatic Torrontes would be a strong contender.
