Santa Julia Malbec Reserva 2010
Santa Julia is a label offshoot of Familia Zuccardi wines from Mendoza, Argentina. The wine is named after Julia Zuccardi, daughter of chief winemaker José Alberto Zuccardi. The wines are organic (although not certified under US law) and handmade, with close attention to detail. This is an affordable range of dry and sparkling wines as well as a late harvest Torontes/Viognier blend called simply “Tardio.”
My Rating 87: This wine has a firm tannin body that is sufficient dry The is la little complex with Malbec type aromas
External Reviews for Santa Julia Malbec Reserva
Dunkelviolett, leicht rubinrot schimmernd, intensive Fruchtnote nach Pflaumen und Dörrobst, sehr körperreich, langanhaltender Abgang.
A great everyday red, the Santa Julia Reserve Malbec comes from their estate vineyards in Mendoza. Good complexity with ripe notes of plums and blackberries. Full-bodied with soft tannins, there are hints of vanilla on the finish due to the 10 months of aging in new French oak.
