2018 Zorzal "Eggo - Tinto de Tiza" Malbec Mendoza

SKU #1601208 95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark My favorite of the Malbecs is the 2018 Eggo Tinto de Tiza, from a Mendoza year—mild and dry—and aged exclusively in concrete eggs, which to me is the Zorzal signature. This is elegant, nuanced and pure, with great aromatics, clean and precise and with a medium-bodied palate, with moderate ripeness and red rather than black fruit. This is superb. It matured for 10 months before it was bottled... (LG) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Tar, pepper and blackberry aromas follow through to a medium body with very finely polished tannins and a gorgeous finish. No wood. All aged in concrete. Drink and enjoy now, yet it will improve with age. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intriguing, this has saffron details to the dried violet and rich black cherry and berry core, with subtle herb and eucalyptus nuances weaving in, adding wet stone notes on the finish around crisp tannins. Drink now through 2028. (AR) Inner quote mark (10/2023)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Malbec Eggo Tinto de Tiza was fermented with native yeasts and aged in concrete eggs for 11 months. Reddish purple in the glass. Gunpowder and dark fruit, such as blackberry and blueberry, shimmer alongside herbs in a reductive nose that takes a while to open up. Terse in the mouth with a fine, juicy texture it is flavorful and long-lasting. A modern red. (JH) Inner quote mark (11/2021)

K&L Notes

This Malbec is savory, serious, dry wine has terrific presence and intensity - not to mention structure - on the palate. Once again, the Michelini brothers have proven the power of the blend, aged in their beloved concrete eggs. Perhaps more than any other winery in Argentina right now, Zorzal is challenging the notion of what wines from that country can and should be, focusing on early picked fruit from highly calcareous parcels and then a simple regimen in the cellar to pursue balanced, food-friendly wines.
