2014 Zorzal, Eggo Malbec, Tupungato, Mendoza
£15.95, 13.5%, www.corkingwines.co.uk; www.slurp.co.uk
Tasted at: Wine of the Week
Fermented and aged in concrete eggs, as its name suggests, this is a wonderful blend of Malbec with a little Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Michelini brothers. Typically light and refreshing, with sappy, tangy, black cherry flavours, bright acidity and no wood at all. Modern Argentina at its refreshing, spicy best.
