*91 Points - Neil Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate*
Zorzal Wines has been dedicated to the production of high-quality wines since 2008. Zorzal belongs to Canadian partners and to the Michelini brothers, who are outstanding in their passionate, personal leadership in the work of the vineyards and winery.
Gualtallary, where Zorzal wines come from, is in one of Argentina's most outstanding vine-growing valleys, the Uco Valley. Gualtallary is situated at 1,350 metres above sea-level in the highest vine-growing zone in the Province of Mendoza, at the foot of Tupungato volcano, one of the highest peaks in the Andes. This zone is characterized by its combination of altitude, alluvial soils, sunny days, low rainfall and wide temperature range. The combination of cool climate and chalky soils gives us wines with great structure and delicious acidity.
'The harvest for the 2012 Terroir Unico Sauvignon Blanc was carried out to exacting standards: four “tries” through the vineyard a la Sauternes that. to paraphrase the Michelini’s, are in order to view the vintage as a movie rather than a single picture. It has a very precise bouquet with dewy green apples, smoke and a touch of gooseberry – very Loire-like in style. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity. It is superbly balanced with tangible minerality towards the finish. This is life affirming, tensile Sauvignon.' 91 Points Neil Martin
