Zorzal Pinot Noir Eggo Filoso 2017

The Zorzal Pinot Noir Eggo Filoso from Tupungato is a fresh Pinot Noir defined by the chalky soil of its origin, vibrant and sharp on the palate giving rise to its name of Filoso (sharp in Spanish).

Producer Note - 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 highly regarded winemaking duo have become renowned as the trendsetters of the Argentinian winemaking scene.

Vineyard - 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 characterised 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.

Winemaking - Carefully selected, whole grapes with their stalks were placed in the cement egg, without crushing, in order to create an alcoholic fermentation inside the grape, known as carbonic maceration. After the 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 intervention to stabilise or filter the wine.

Tasting Note - 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.

Serving Suggestion - A great match with fish, as well as pasta, sweetbreads and cheeses

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
