Cellar for up to 6 years. Serve chilled.

Alberto Zuccardi never intended to found a winery when he planted his first vineyard in Mendoza in 1963. The engineer planned to use the site to show off a new irrigation system which was popular at the time, but his experiment quickly turned into a brand-new passion. Five years later he built a winery on the site which today is still run by his son and grandson.

The Zuccardi family are best known for their exceptional Malbec wines grown in Mendoza’s high altitude Uco Valley, but they also work with many other varieties which thrive in these conditions like this Chardonnay. The grapes used for this wine come from two vineyards in the Uco Valley, Gualtallary which sits at 1400 metres above sea level, and El Peral at 1200 metres above sea level. Thanks to the bright, sunny days and cooler nights, the grapes enjoy a very long ripening season and retain plenty of delicate aromatics as well as ripe fruit flavours.

In the winery the fruit is fermented in concrete tanks and used oak barrels using wild yeasts. The young wine is then left to mature on the lees to add extra complexity and a rich, creamy texture. Luscious mango, peach, lychee and zesty citrus dominate on the nose, while on the palate there’s a medium body and ripe tropical fruit notes that linger on the tongue.
