#1 Argentinian Organic Producer!
From the Zuccardi family, who have been making wine in Mendoza for 3 generations. Organica is their certified organic range, emblematic of their commitment to the land and 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!
The 2019 Chardonnay is vinified in stainless steel tanks with selected dry yeast at 15-18 degrees C. The color is a pale yellow with green hues. On the nose you’ll detect elegant aromas of tropical fruits, green apple, pear, banana and pineapple, along with honey and a hint of citrus notes. The wine is a dry, medium-bodied Chardonnay. It’s well-balance, pleasant and has a long finish. It is a remarkable wine for the price.
