Q Chardonnay 2021

Uco Valley

Zuccardi's Q series wines are made from small parcels of top-quality old vine fruit marked by their depth and concentration.

Vineyards

Grapes are harvested (by hand) from the end of February through to the middle of March to ensure they reach the winery in tip-top condition.

Vintage

From the winemaking point of view, this was a wonderful harvest, with outstanding health and quality contributed by the grapes. The ripeness obtained was that expected in each region, vineyard and plot, and it allowed us to harvest each one at its optimum moment. Because of these conditions, we obtained balanced wines with distinct identities, capable of transparently revealing our interpretation of the year and their sense of place. Whites present very good acidity and boast a broad aromatic palette including fruits, herbs and flowers. Reds, on the other hand, offer great aromatic complexity expressed in various facets, depending on the area and the variety. Some are reminiscent of fruit, others, of herbs and spices. On the palate, juiciness and texture are the defining traits of 2021 wines.

Winemaking

The grapes were direct pressed. Fermented in concrete and used oak barrels with native yeasts. Aging “sur lie” without malolactic fermentation.
