Zuccardi's Apelcion range is about expressing the personality of specific zones of the Uco Valley. In this case the Vista Flores and Altamira sites. The wines are a result of meticulous vine growing with low yields and given a long maceration to give a tannic structure for for further ageing. The wine is dense and rich, showing blackcurrant and blueberry fruit with the added dimension of dried herbs

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.
