El Abasto

The Zuccardi family have created an excellent range of commercial wines. Chenin-Torrontes, Villa Vieja, from vineyards in Mendoza sees Chenin (grape of the Loire) meet Torrontes (grape of northern Spain) to create an intriguing example of Argentinean fusion. The Torrontes provides plenty of aromatic appeal, distinct floral notes of rose petal, delightful notes of fresh Muscat grapes and Turkish delight, the Chenin gives weight and a steely balance with its firm acidity. A delicious summery wine that would complement asparagus or artichokes and simple salads. The Viognier flaunts ample white-fleshed fruit and manages to avoid the hollowness that cheaper versions from the Languedoc exhibit. It is the El Abasto range of wines that show best what Argentina is capable of. The relaxed vinification of the reds highlights the excellent quality of the fruit. The Malbec is punchy, red fruits and tannins in alignment, whilst the Malbec-Bonarda is a brilliant blend with lifted aromatics and stemmy freshness
