Description

Zorzal Eggo Filoso Pinot Noir

Zorzal Eggo Filoso Pinot Noir is an intense Pinot Noir, in which the calcareous terroir is perfectly distinct with aromas of gunpowder, graphite and chalk. On the palate it has an incredible texture, electric and sharp, from which it gained its name of Filoso (sharp) in Spanish. A wine of great length and persistence.

Zorzal is an Argentinian boutique winery which has been dedicated to the production of high quality wines since 2008 and is located at the highest point of the Uco Valley. Hailed as one of the most exclusive and well-regarded areas for viticulture in Argentina, the terroir is revealed in the Zorzal wines through a respectful, non invasive winemaking process that puts austerity before exuberance and fruit before wood. The wines have rapidly gained international recognition. Founded by the Michelini brothers, who are outstanding in their passionate leadership in the vineyards and winery, this winemaking duo have become renowned as the trendsetters of the Argentinian winemaking scene.
The grapes are grown in a specifically limey patch of a plot in the drip irrigated vineyards in Gualtallary, located 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 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 ranges. The diurnal temperatures here oscillate between 35°C and 17°C, creating long, slow ripening periods, concentrating the flavours in the fruit.
Carefully selected, whole grapes, complete with their stalks and without having been crushed were placed in the cement egg in order to produce an acoholic fermentation inside the grape, known as carbonic maceration.
After the alcoholic fermentation was complete, the grapes were pressed and the wine extracted was combined with the free-run juice. The egg was refilled and the wine remained in it for at least six months. The bottling took place directly from the egg to the bottle, without any type of intervention to stabilise or filter the wine.

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality.
