Wine tasting notes

It is a dense, dark purple color with rich fruit flavors of blueberry and boysenberry, lilac and wet rain bounce on the nose, and has a strong mineral undertone of crushed wet rock and chalk. Eggo is the perfect combination of a chalky, terroir driven wine, with vibrant fruit and a long smooth finish.

Winery information

Zorzal

Zorzal is a young, boutique winery that began in 2007 by the Michelini brothers, Gerardo, Matias, and Juan Pablo (the winemaker) along with a group of Canadian investors, with it’s first vintage being 2008. The winery and vineyards are located in the subregion of the Uco Valley called Gualtallary, outside the town of Tupungato, at approximately 4500 feet above sea level, making it the highest winery in Mendoza. The estate consists of 70 hectares on a unique blend of sand, stones, and limestone and is planted to multiple varietals including Malbec, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, as well as a few others. The grapes are all hand harvested and the vision is to have a light hand in the winemaking to let the fruit and terroir shine. The winery practices organic methods in the vineyards and uses only indigenous yeast in the wine making process. Zorzal tends to pick it’s grapes a little earlier (greener) than most in Mendoza to retain freshness and acidity in their wines instead of the overblown ripeness that is too often seen. They are already considered to be a rising star in Argentina with their focused wines and enticing expression of multiple varietals above and beyond their stunning Malbecs.

Vinification notes

Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation take place in ovoid-shaped containers (EGGS) made of cement, without an epoxy-paint coating. Their shape helps us to keep the liquid constantly in movement, so making temperature control much better and achieving greater character and volume in the mouth, thanks to the fact that the lees remain always in suspension. The wine is aged in the same container, with a view to conserving its authentic character, without interference from any input, such as oak, from another terroir.
