Santa Julia Organica is one of the brands produced by Familia Zuccardi, a family-owned vineyard and winery in Mendoza, Argentina. The winery was founded in 1963 by Alberto V. Zuccardi, and is now run by his son, José Alberto Zuccardi.
The Organica range represents excellent value for money. The wines are remarkably pure with lovely fruit and fine acidity.
The Malbec is rich yet fruity with a nose of sweet violets as well as ripe fruits such as figs and raisins. Also notes of tobacco, vanilla and chocolate. The palate is relatively fruity, but not jammy, and not a fruit bomb either. It’s mostly cherry and blackberry on the palate, with a hint of cocoa.
