Familia Zuccardi has been crafting wine in the Mendoza area of Argentina since 1963. Now in the hands of the third generation of descendants, this growing company has made an important place for itself in the world of Argentinean wines. To cement its position, the company has crafted the first collection of fortified wines to come from Argentina. The creators were inspired by a trip to Portugal, returning home with the idea to craft their very own Port. But instead of a simple copy of Portuguese Port, they wanted to create their own fortified wine with an Argentinean character.

Malamado Malbec is a 100% Malbec fortified wine made in the classic method. All of the grapes are harvested in Uco Valley in Mendoza in the first week of April before undergoing 10 days of fermentation. The fermentation process is stopped by the addition of "agua ardiente" (eau-de-vie) and then the spirit is aged in French oak barrels for two years.

The final alcohol content of this fortified wine is 18.5%, leaving it sweet yet strong. Mature and silky, this is the perfect accompaniment to enjoy with chocolate or cheese at the end of a meal. This rich Port-style liqueur wine is an excellent new way to enjoy the delicious Argentinean Malbec.
