Zuccardi Q Malbec 2018
La pureza es la sensación principal que define a este monovarietal de Malbec mendocino, cuya cuna se enclava a más de mil metros sobre el nivel del mar. Fermentado y criado en hormigón y barricas usadas, destaca por su perfumada expresividad floraly, cuerpo medio y taninos finos que hacen de él un tinto serio pero fácil de beber.

Very fresh and floral on the nose with graphite and carbon to the blackberry character. Full-bodied, firm and silky with a creamy and compact texture. Racy. Drink or hold.
There is a sense of purity in the 2018 Q Malbec that seems common to the whole portfolio here—wines that show precision, are clean and show no excess in any direction: ripeness, extraction or oak. It comes from Altamira and Chacayes, where 2018 was very balanced, and this is an exercise of blending over 100 components, as they ferment by soil even within the same vineyard. They fermented with different amounts of full clusters depending on the plot, perhaps 30% on average, and they fermented in concrete and with only 30% of the wine matured in used barriques. It's floral, expressive and perfumed, with a medium-bodied palate where the tannins are fine and there's some grip. The wine is serious but easy to drink. They want the wine to have a similar style to the top range: freshness, purity, cleanliness and texture that says it's from the Valle de Uco. 300,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2018.
Fresh and highly aromatic with concentrated layers of blackberry, blueberry and tobacco taking centre stage. High-altitude fruit combines with native yeasts to bring a rich, earthy wine carrying a fuller body, round tannins and a long, engaging finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2023.
