A new summer favourite - 89p
I’m constantly searching for and tasting new cool wines. And for the last 4-5 years I’ve been spending a lot of time in the new world. USA, Greece, South Africa, Australia and Argentina, for the most. I’m always going to be a big fan of France, Italy and Spain, so discoveries in the new world is just more fun. Well, enough talk; I’ve found a new summer favourite and it’s Argentinian.
Zuccardi is one of the leading wine families in Argentina. Well known for their high quality wines since they first started back in 1963. Argentina is widely known for its outstanding Malbec wines, but also some world class Chardonnay’s have emerged the last years. What is not so common is white on 100% Sémillon. A grape that originated in the Graves district in Bordeaux, France.
Our pick of the week is just a marvellous bottle. The grapes come from 70+ years old vines and 100% has been fermented in the barrel’s. After that, 8 months of cellaring. It’s fresh, complex, spicy and buttery. And a stunning acidity that makes it very versatile with food.
The price makes this one of the best bargains at Vinmonopolet right now.
