Zuccardi, Aluvional, Paraje Altamira,
 Uco Valley 2012

Mendoza may make up 75% of Argentina's Malbec output, but a new generation of producers are ensuring that its style is anything but predictable. Patricio Tapia picks 22 Malbecs to try...

Aged in cement tanks and old barrels for a year, this comes from vines planted on the chalky soils of Altamira. Its tannins are tight and tense and the flavours rich in mineral tones and sweetly spiced red fruits. A true expression of the place, it will gain in charm and complexity.
