Finca Canal Uco 2016
Zuccardi Fincas seeks to highlight the maximum concept of terroir, showing the characteristics of the Uco Valley vineyards, which make them unique and unrepeatable.
Alluvial, sandy loam soil with middle depth of 60cm - 1.97 feet. Bellow rocks with a layer of clay inside and covered with calcium carbonate.
The best description for the 2016 harvest is “Unique”, complex and challenging with respect to the climate and one of the shortest with smallest yields on record since 1960. The harvest started on the 5th of April with parcels of Malbec. We also harvested certain parcels earlier that are rocky and more calcareous and which showed very high quality.
The grapes were selected by hand, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation with native yeasts in tronco-conical concrete vats without epoxy. 30% of the wine was aged in 500L oak barrels and the rest in concrete vats
- Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
