Free South America Tasting
Mar 2, 2013 12:00am
Join us for our final free South America tasting Saturday afternoon and try something new. This Saturday we have two selections from the Vida Organica in the Mendoza region of Argentina. Located in the western central part of the country, this area has a sunny, dry climate with warm summers and relatively cool winters.
Vida Organica is a range of wines produced from organically-grown grapes from the Zuccardi family. They believe that working with nature is the best way to produce wines of character, quality & appeal. Grapes at the La Zuccardi vineyards are handled in the most natural way possible: hand harvested, and no herbicides, fungicides or chemical fertilizers have been used.
2011 Vida Organica Cabernet Sauvignon
This is a cabernet with classic blackcurrant aromas and deep fruit flavours that burst from this full bodied smooth and beautifully balanced red wine. A wine of strength & elegance.
An elegant bouquet offering a profusion of aromas – green apple, pear, pineapple and honeydew melon with nuances of honey and citrus. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate. Very well balanced with long lasting crisp finish.
