Made by the Zuccardi family in the Maipu region of Mendoza, this is easy-drinking Chardonnay balanced to pin-point precision. You'll find aromas of bananas, melons, honey and a hint of biscuit richness. The palate is peachy fresh with a citrusy twang, making it a great food wine - try garlicky chicken or punchy, aromatic salads.

Buy this if...you lean towards fresh, light Chardonnay styles.

The Producer

Three generations of the Zuccardi family have presided over the company since it was founded by engineer Alberto Zuccardi in 1963. Planting vines in the Maipu province of Mendoza, Alberto was one of the first producers to experiment with irrigation systems. Fast forward fifty years and current owner Sebastián Zuccardi was awarded with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016 by the International Wine Challenge. Social and environmental responsibility is high on the agenda for this prominent company and initiatives include the protection of over 70 hectares of woodland and 1100 hectares where the native flora and fauna are protected.

The Winemaker

Following a degree in oenology, Rubén Ruffo has worked more than 20 vintages in the winery and also manages to fit in numerous overseas trips to gain experience in wineries in France, Italy and all over Spain. His enthusiasm for his job is infectious and his precise, detailed approach is evident across the Zuccardi range and rewarded in multiple awards.

The Region

Mendoza is the country's largest wine province, producing over 80% of Argentina's total wine production and with more than 160,000 hectares of cultivated vineyards. The Suelo Argentino and St Veronica wines are produced in one of Mendoza’s most historic vineyard areas in the east of the region, planted at altitudes of between 640 -750m above sea level. This area copes well with both white and red varietals, including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin and Torrontés among the whites and Shiraz, Malbec, Bonarda and Tempranillo for the reds - with the St Veronica wines made specifically from grapes grown in the southern, higher altitude Uco Valley.

The traditional Argentinian empañada is the perfect lunchtime snack or light supper, served here with a vibrant, fresh sauce. You can use minced beef, chicken or pork in these, with the zingy flavours in the sauce complementing bright fruit flavours in fresh, whites such as the Suelo Argentino Chardonnay.

A classic Caesar salad with rich dressing needs nothing but a glass of bright, fruity white - head to New World Sauvignon or South American Chardonnay, we'd recommend the Suelo Argentino Chardonnay.
