Santa Julia Reserva Malbec 2020

Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaYou have heard us talk about wines we can count on, reliable producers, and great value wines. Well, this is one of them. The Santa Julia Reserve Malbec draws upon the considerable resources and skills of the Zuccardi family, and it delivers it all at a fantastic price. It is entirely hand-picked Uco Valley fruit grown at 1400 metres above sea level. It goes through a classic, warm 20-day fermentation using selected yeast. Part of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for ten months. The nose is fresh and bright with red-black fruit evoking cherries, plums, blueberries, and black plums with just a trace of sticky tannins for gravitas. Back up the truck, again and again.Tasted: 05 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
