A dry and fresh PG from the La Agricola Company founded by Alberto Zuccardi in 1963 and located at Maipu in Argentina’s Mendoza Valley. Today the business is run by Alberto’s son, Jose-Alberto Zuccardi, who has transformed the estate into one of the leading producers in South America. Mendoza is actually defined as high desert (rainfall hardly ever exceeds 200mm.annum) so irrigation is vital and is provided when the snow caps of Andes mountains melt in springtime. This brings unique and particular characteristics to the vineyards such as a wide temperature range, marked seasons, great luminosity and a lengthy period of maturation. The El Abasto (‘The Supply’) range is designed to introduce consumers to the company’s more approachable and interesting wines.
A pale straw in colour with green flashes. Scents of peach, citrus and pear. On the palate, dry and nutty with a brilliant acidity leading to a refreshing finish. Try with a crab salad, seared scallops or grilled squid with a celery pesto.
