Natalie's Score: 90/100

A juicy Malbec produced from grapes sourced form the Altamira and Chacayes in Argentina. Love the ripe blackberry, blueberry aromas joined by ripe black plum, spicy and slightly smoky finish. A portion of the grapes were whole-clustered fermented in concrete tanks with a portion of the wine juice aged in previous-use oak barrels. Nicely done and easy to enjoy now.

Malbec food pairings: tomato sauces, meaty casseroles, hamburgers, steak and kidney pie.

Reviews and Ratings

Zuccardi Q 2018 Malbec is a robust, supple and smooth with rich blackberry, blueberry, plum, pepper spice, earthy, savoury and smoky on the palate. Tannins are medium and manageable. Wine grapes are sourced from Altamira and Chacayes in the Valle de Uco. Pair with a grilled prime rib. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
