ZUCCARDI Q MALBEC 2018

12 Current Inventory

93 POINTS, James Suckling, formally of Wine Spectator. "Very fresh and floral on the nose with graphite and carbon to the blackberry character. Full-bodied, firm and silky with a creamy and compact texture. Racy."

92 POINTS, The Wine Advocate. "There is a sense of purity in the 2018 Q Malbec that seems common to the whole portfolio here—wines that show precision, are clean and show no excess in any direction: ripeness, extraction or oak. It comes from Altamira and Chacayes, where 2018 was very balanced, and this is an exercise of blending over 100 components, as they ferment by soil even within the same vineyard. They fermented with different amounts of full clusters depending on the plot, perhaps 30% on average, and they fermented in concrete and with only 30% of the wine matured in used barriques. It's floral, expressive and perfumed, with a medium-bodied palate where the tannins are fine and there's some grip. The wine is serious but easy to drink."
