Profile

Smell

Citrus fruits lead the charge on this aromatic white, with notes of lemon peel, lime, and white grapefruit. There's also notes of fresh herbs, and a mineral tang reminiscent of wet stone.

Taste

Light-bodied and lively on the palate, with well-integrated and balanced acidity. Refreshing notes of lemongrass, green apple, and thyme lead to a clean, pure finish.

Pairing

Naturally high acidity and herbaceous, lemony freshness make this a perfect match for asparagus risotto or raw oysters, or enjoy on its own as an aperitif.

Aromas and Flavours

Lemon / Lime

Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.

Herbs

Your windowsill herb garden gives off a lovely herbal smell every time you walk by.

Apple

From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.

Grass

The invigorating smell of a freshly-mowed lawn before the heat of the day takes over.

Stone

Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?

Description

Zorzal is based in Gualtallary, the highest-elevation portion of Mendoza's Uco Valley. At 1350 meters above sea level, vineyards enjoy hot, sunny days and rapidly-cooling nights, which helps grapes ripen slowly and retain their natural acidity. That acidity is so critical in white wines like this 100% Sauvignon Blanc, where it adds energy and a refreshing, citrusy zip. Hand harvested grapes are destemmed and fermented with wild yeast in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, and the finished wine is aged for a further two months before bottling. More mineral-driven and austere than most Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand, this example is more reminiscent of French examples of this classic grape. Serve at a well-chilled 8 C and enjoy over the next two years.
