About the Wine
This superb red Wine created by Zuccardi is grown in Mendoza. Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Hatch Mansfield. Jose Zuccardi Malbec, Mendoza is a delicious wine, made from Malbec grapes. This wine has a cork closure and is like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets.
A full bodied and powerful grape variety with a lot of tannin. It ages very well and like Merlot is bottled as a single varietal or used to give blended wines ‘backbone’ structure and longevity. Classic flavour characteristics include blackcurrant, black cherry, green pepper, chocolate and cedar wood.

Malbec is a deeply coloured, intense and tannic, but fruity red. Since Argentina has almost taken it on as its own, it's grown increasingly in popularity. Typically Malbec has flavour characteristics of baked plums, black cherry, violets, sweet spice and sometimes coffee.
