Zuccardi Finca Las Cerrilladas Malbec

With years of research and experience we gained in other areas of the Uco Valley, we decided to plant our first vineyards in Gualtallary, in the area known as Gualtallary Monasterio. Finca Las Cerrilladas is located at the foot of the Jaboncillo Hills (hence its name). It is a vineyard of parcels, where each one accompanies the diversity of the calcareous soils and is surrounded by native vegetation from the area. We have divided the vineyard into approximately 30 plots with different types of soils, aspects and sun exposure, and distinct methods of cultivation. Each lot was vinified separately, to then develop the wine through a blend that best represents the identity of this vineyard.

APPELLATION: Finca Las Cerrilladas, Gualtallary, Uco Valley, Mendoza.
VINIFICATION: Manual harvest with bunch selection. Filling of vessels by gravity. Fermentation in concrete tanks with native yeasts. Aged in concrete vessels.

ALTITUDE: 4,462 feet / 1,360 meters above sea level
SOIL TYPE: A true high-altitude desert. Located in the small valley at the foot of the Jaboncillo Hills, the slopes and ravines enclose a landscape rich in thorny bushes, desert trees, and jarilla herbs, that grow alongside Malbec plants. For this wine, the plots with the richest caliche soils were selected, resting on a base of alluvial stones covered with calcium carbonate.
HARVEST: 2019 was an exceptional vintage, cool and dry. With temperatures that were below the average and a great thermal amplitude. The climatic conditions gave us very good natural acidity, very well structured tannins, excellent fruit and not over ripe.
ALCOHOL: 14.5% | TOTAL ACIDITY: 6.10 g/l | pH: 3.64

Very good natural acidity, very well structured tannins, excellent fruit and not over ripe.
