"The 2017 Terroir Único Pinot Noir fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats, where it was kept until bottling. It's a fruit-driven, fresh Pinot Noir sold at an incredible price. Clean, ripe without excess, with a light to medium-bodied palate, fine tannins and juicy fruit. Great value. 38,990 bottles were filled in December 2017."

The Wine
This hand harvested, single vineyard from Gualtallary is 100% Pinot Noir and is completely un-oaked to let the fruit driven quality of the wine shine. Bright red fruits, predominantly raspberry, jump out of the glass with gamey notes, cola, dried leaves, and forest floor. The mouthfeel is rich, soft, and supple with light tannin and medium acidity. The chalky soil comes through in the long finish, great with or without food.

The Winery
Zorzal is a young, boutique winery that began in 2007 by the Michelini brothers, Gerardo, Matias, and Juan Pablo (the winemaker) along with a group of Canadian investors, with it’s first vintage being 2008. The winery and vineyards are located in the subregion of the Uco Valley called Gualtallary, outside the town of Tupungato, at approximately 4500 feet above sea level, making it the highest winery in Mendoza. The estate consists of 70 hectares on a unique blend of sand, stones, and limestone and is planted to multiple varietals including Malbec, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, as well as a few others. The grapes are all hand harvested and the vision is to have a light hand in the winemaking to let the fruit and terroir shine. The winery practices organic methods in the vineyards and uses only indigenous yeast in the wine making process. Zorzal tends to pick it’s grapes a little earlier (greener) than most in Mendoza to retain freshness and acidity in their wines instead of the overblown ripeness that is too often seen. They are already considered to be a rising star in Argentina with their focused wines and enticing expression of multiple varietals above and beyond their stunning Malbecs.
