James Suckling, April 2020 / 90 Points; Wine Enthusiast, June 2020 / Best Buy

From the Zuccardi family, who have been making wine in Mendoza for 3 generations.  Made with Organic Grapes is their range of wines coming from certified organic vineyards, and expresses the goal of emphasizing organic agriculture, peacefully coexisting with the environment.  They are the #1 organic producer in Argentina.  They have a large composting program, including a dedicated ‘worm-farm”.  They bottle in lightweight glass and in 100% recyclable cans.  They use solar power in the winery with 100% water reclamation.  They also have energy conservation processes in the winery.  In addition, there are 160 acres on the estate that is completely undeveloped to keep the local ecosystem thriving.  They also treat their employees very well: child care and schooling for employees’ children, as well as adult education classes and access to computer labs.  They are the real deal!

This 100% organically grown Malbec is sourced from Santa Rosa and Maipu Vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina. The wine is vinified in stainless steel tank with dry selected yeast. The color is violet-intense purple, concentrated and bright. It has a complex nose with varietals notes of ripe fruits, figs, prunes, jam and raisins. Good body, with sweet tannins and well balanced by acidity. Lingering and complex finish. In scoring this wine a 90 Points, James Suckling wrote: Creamy and refined with some blackberries and lemon rind. Medium body. Juicy finish. Fun to drink. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.
