    Rich & Complex
    The Zuccardi philosophy is all about creating wines with a sense of place, and the chalky, limestone rich soils shine through in this complex Malbec from the highly-acclaimed Paraje Altamira appellation.

    The 2016 vintage was cooler and wetter than normal, but the grapes that survived the difficult conditions have gone on to produce outstanding wines. The wine delivers soft red cherry, red currant and plum fruit with engaging minerality and balancing acidity. Drink 2020 - 2032.
