Zuccardi Q Valle de Uco Malbec Argentina 2016


Valle de Uco is southwest of Mendoza in Argentina, and is favourably regarded.  This particular malbec provides a contrast to the Cahors rendition just reviewed.  Quite deeply coloured in the glass, it has an aroma of sweet cooked fruit, herbs and oak.  The palate is jammy and savoury, with overlays of baked spices and meats, fresh acidity and a full body.  Ready to drink now, this is a fruit driven and approachable wine.  Rating: Good. Abv: 14%. Price: $27. Website: na.
