    Rich, exotic aromas of rich berries and peaches with some flowers and hints of walnuts, following through to a full body with firm tannins and a juicy finish. Pretty, fine and dusty tannins. Juicy finish. Delicious now or hold.

    There is a strong iron note in the 2018 Finca Piedra Infinita Supercal, a Malbec from a small plot within Piedra Infinita, usually the first plot to be harvested within Piedra Infinita. It's an extreme plot, very shallow and with pure stone and a strong character. They found this plot in search for "cal," pure limestone, so they want a strong sensation of chalk in the wine here. This is austere, and I think it's more precise than in previous vintages.

Zuccardi

Pioneers in Mendoza, Zuccardi is one of Argentina’s most forward-thinking estates. With five properties spread across the region, the estate is now run by father Jose and his son Sebastian. This familial winemaking team are known for pushing the envelope on quality, consistently producing sublime wines which beautifully display Argentina’s unique microclimates and soils. The estate has not only caught our eye, but also the world’s, winning numerous awards and accolades for their exceptional wines. Tim Atkin MW listed Sebastian as one of South America’s top 10 most exciting winemakers in Decanter and, for the third year running, Zuccardi has won the IWC Canopy title of ‘World’s Best Vineyard’.

Region

Argentina

Soon after gaining independence from Spain in 1816, Argentina began attracting successive waves of European immigrants, who brought winemaking traditions and vines with them. For a long time, Argentinian wine was defined by high yields and sun-ripened grapes, however, since the 1980s, the industry has benefitted from a process of modernisation. Combining tradition with extreme altitudes, modern Argentine winemakers have placed more focus on planting in cooler areas, with the aim of prolonging the ripening stage and therefore maximising the quality of fruit. No wine-producing country in the world has made more progress over the last few decades than Argentina, and it is now one of the top exporting countries across the globe. Much of this success can be credited to the hugely popular full-bodied reds made from Malbec, which for years was the most planted black grape in Argentina. Today, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are commonly found and produced in a full range of styles. Mendoza is the main wine region of Argentina. A vast and tremendously varied province nestled against the Andes, its exceptional fruit is the result of the region’s extreme altitudes. The higher the vineyard, the cooler the nights, allowing the wines to retain bright acidity and colour intensity, while the greater effect of radiation increases the concentration of flavour. Mendoza is now home to some of the finest wines of the world, with Catena Zapata leading the way in terms of reputation and quality.
