La Agricola

Based at the Santa Rosa Estate, situated 85km east of Mendoza City, the well-known Zuccardi family produce entry level, fruit driven wines that offer great value for money. Headed by Jose Alberto Zuccardi, the family team tend to vineyards which are almost desert-like, experiencing 350 days of sunshine a year. Irrigation is provided by melt water from the nearby Andes, allowing the family to produce wonderfully fresh and tender fruit, ensuring all of their wines are packed with fruity flavours.

Jammy and spicy characters with delicious plum and bramble flavours, light dusty tannins, white pepper finish.

Deeply fruity and silky smooth

The blurb describes this as having a plum flavour (among other things) and that's what occurred to my simplistic palate. The fruit is very evident but I found that unlike some wines with a similar flavour, there's no sourness at all (15 minute breathing period applies) and despite feeling full bodied, it doesn't feel too heavy. It's extremely smooth and delicious and is now on my favourites list.
