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!

What is natural wine?
The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.
Are your wines vegan friendly?
In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.
Are your wines chemical free?
Yes, we only stock wines that use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, *with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some organic winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines travel better and last longer.
