$222.00 (per Case)

Price per Bottle: $37.00

Rating: 94 from Robert Parker

The one blend in the Eggo range is the 2015 Eggo Tinto de Tiza, which mixes Malbec with 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented in 2,000-liter egg-shaped cement vats where the wine matured for almost one year. This feels quite complete and balanced, with good ripeness while keeping the balance and poise. The palate is juicy and fresh, with fine-grained tannins and a bittersweet finish akin to sour cherries. Very tasty and long. Super. Incredible for the price. 16,000 bottles were filled in January 2016.

Zorzal is renowned for having state-of-the-art technology in crushing, fermentation and ageing. In order to achieve natural wines of the highest quality, the winery was designed on four levels to transport grapes and wines by gravity, without the use of pumps. At the same time, the winery has an automatic system of temperature control from New Zealand, which can be operated by internet from anywhere in the world. In their search to get the best out of the Gualtallary terroir, the Michelini brothers are constantly innovating processes, and this has involved bringing in roll fermenters and egg-shaped vats, in addition to introducing staggered harvesting and micro-vinifications in casks. Gualtallary, where Zorzal wines come from, is in one of Argentina’s most outstanding vine-growing valleys, the Uco Valley. Gualtallary is situated at 1,350 metres above sea-level in the highest vine-growing zone in the Province of Mendoza, at the foot of Tupungato volcano, one of the highest peaks in the Andes. This zone is characterized by its combination of altitude, alluvial soils, sunny days, low rainfall and wide temperature range. The combination of cool climate and chalky soils gives us wines with great structure and delicious acidity.
