Made by the Zuccardi family in the Maipu region of Mendoza, this 'Suelo' Malbec honours the toil of the vineyard workers in producing these high altitude styles. This is a soft, easy-drinking style of Malbec, with ripe black fruits complete with a touch of savoury spice. The perfect burger wine (tried and tested).

'For those who like softer lighter easy-drinking Malbec...this Suelo varietal is juicy soft and very more-ish.'

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.

Very good wine.

This is a wine that is hard to dislike. In fact, it is a great all-rounder. Drink on it's own or with food. You can't go wrong with this one!

Chicken Paupiette with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

The multi-layered flavours of savoury mushroom, sweet, sun-dried tomato and rich aubergine and pepper calls for a bit of an all-rounder. A soft, easy-drinking Argentinian Malbec will cover all the required taste bases!

Pasta with Olives, Tomatoes & Spicy Sausage

A simple and versatile dish – it’ll compliment wines with a bit of spice, rich and fruity but not too heavy. Try the Suelo Argentino Malbec from Mendoza.

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

This robust, flavoursome cut is nicely balanced by the punchy, herby sauce. Plump for lightly oaked Malbec or Cabernet but remember not to go too full-bodied or risk drowning out the green sauce. The Suelo range has a great selection.
