Zorzal Eggo Blanc de Cal Sauvignon Blanc 2021

The wines of Zorzal have rapidly gained international recognition and become renowned as the trendsetters of the Argentinian winemaking scene. The Eggo Blanc de Cal Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in a high altitude, drip irrigated single-vineyard in Tupungato, Gualtallary, in the outstanding vine-growing area of the Uco Valley. The grapes were gently pressed and transferred to the cement eggs; 50% of the fruit was vinified with skin contact. When fermentation was complete, a partial malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was then left in the same cement eggs for nine months, without separating it from the lees, which generated volume on the palate. The wine was bottled directly from the cement egg which significantly helps with the structuring and stabilisation of the wine, through the natural movements that are created by this shape. This is a characterful and bright Sauvignon Blanc, showcasing mineral intensity combined with enticing white peach notes. The wonderful volume and texture on the palate is balanced by a refreshing acidity, through to a persistent finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
