Wine Advocate, May 2021,
It comes from grapes planted at 1,400 meters above sea level in the coolest place possible. It's citrusy and has notes of aromatic herbs with restraint. On the palate, it's vibrant and very dry, with marked chalkiness. It's more about the place than the grape. 4,300 bottles produced. Drink Date 2021 – 2026. 95 points. Luis Gutiérrez.
Vinous, May 2021,
A yellowy-green in the glass, the nose contains aromas of country herbs, resin, apple, pears, peas and a hint of cardamom. Complex and intriguing, the 2019 Fósil Zuccardi has a powerful texture in the mouth and sustained flavor with heightened but contained freshness that comes in with a kick at the end. This white, Sebastian Zuccardi's best, is influenced by the wines of Burgundy. Drink 2020 - 2029. 95 points. Joaquín Hidalgo
Pioneers in Mendoza, the Zuccardi family have five properties spread throughout the region: La Consulta, Vista Flores and Alta Mira in the Uco Valley and Maipu and Santa Rosa, both south-east of the city of Mendoza. The estate is now run by the third generation, Sebastian. He has been recognised for producing sublime wines of the highest quality which beautifully display Argentina´s exceptional microclimates and soils. In his words, “wines that perfectly express the place, the region.” He’s not only caught our eye, but also the world’s, winning awards and accolades for his wines. The Wine Advocate states; “Zuccardi is one of the leading producers in Argentina”. The praise doesn't stop there. Tim Atkin MW listed Sebastian as one of South America’s top 10 most exciting winemakers in Decanter and they have won the IWC Canopy title, for the second year running, of ‘World’s Best Vineyard’.
Argentina’s wine region has expanded rapidly since the mid 1990’s. The intense full bodied reds, principally from Malbec, and some whites, including the aromatic Torrontel, became familiar and then admired by the export market. The quality of wine is continuing to increase putting pressure on its Chilean rivals.
