2019 Del Mono Malbec Syrah Blend
Biodynamic grapes, wild fermented in concrete pressed off before finishing, followed by ageing in amphora. Bottled unfiltered and unfined. A wine that turns what most people think of as Argentinian wine on its head. The colour is blue black, hinting as something quite different to what it is, this wine is all about the texture created by limestone soils which yield a sinewy backbone with savoury blue fruits sitting on top that unfold and bloom with a little time in the glass. A tight acid line and a depth of flavour without excessive extraction or ripeness, make this a truly exciting, electric wine. Matias Michelini is pushing the boundaries of Argentinian wine (picking much earlier, using amphora for reds and extended skin contact for whites).
In the past the Michelini brothers built Zorzal winery up to be consistently rated amongst the top five in Argentina. This is one of Matias Michelini's newer projects and we have to say we are very excited by it!
