Zuccardi Serie A Torrontés, 2013

Value week on Buyingbcwines: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris have all had their day—to a point where no one bats an eye when there’s nothing else on offer. Not so Torrontés. Why? Maybe because the low altitude Torrontés common on the BCL shelves is so different from the high altitude? And the latter, more sere, striking and of course rarer, is not what drinkers think of when they think of Torrontés? Does anyone think of Torrontés?

 

They should think of this especial example from Zuccardi. At the risk of sounding like a ponce, this is both aggressive and seductive. A juicy, grassy, fruit forward wine that evokes Semillon, Sauv Bl and Gewurtz. Absolute pleasure. Gorgeously food friendly. Absolutely unique.  From the high vineyards of Salta.

Price: You can still find the 2013 at a few private stores if you’re clever at or around the $20 mark. If you’re not fussy about the year, Everything Wine always has some in stock.

 

Market Liquidity: Start a trend.
