From one of the most awarded wineries in South America and Decanter’s No.1 Argentine winemaker, this is a fabulous, cask matured Cabernet. The grapes are sourced from 1100 metre high vineyards, which accounts for the wine’s superb elegance and power.
"An exciting new release from Zuccardi, Cabernet from Uco’s trendiest sub-appellation, La Consulta"
Beth Willard Buyer for Argentina
Founded in 1963, Zuccardi is the most highly awarded winery in Argentina. It’s run today by the second and third generations – José Alberto Zuccardi, given a Lifetime Achievement Award for his pioneering work, and his son Sebastián, named Decanter’s Top Winemaker of South America. “Zuccardi keeps going from strength to strength with their top-level wines” (Wine Advocate). This is a special Cabernet, the grapes sourced from vineyards in the high altitude La Consulta sub-region of the Uco Valley. Temperatures are cool, so ripening is particularly slow. This results in elegance, depth and lovely aromatics in this red, while ageing in part new, French oak barrels lends real finesse. To enjoy now, open early and decant. It’ll age well too.
