The "Los Barbaros" is deep purple in colour, almost like Ribena. Savoury spice, herbal notes and a real earthy character fill the nose. The palate is a swirl of rich black and blue fruit, mainly plums and blackberries. A big wine acids are quite prominent and tannins biggish...certainly not subtle. A good drinking wine.
Barbarians is a collective of small, new wave, independent wine families based in the Uco Valley, Mendoza. Each has their own strong identity but the group share similar philosophies, working with natural and sustainable viticultural and winemaking philosophies. The group was created by the Michelini brothers who founded Zorzal in their home of Tupungato before beginning their own personal projects. The Michelini’s also work together on the SuperUco wines, sourced from three different bio-dynamic vineyards in the Uco Valley and made in a very traditional European mould.
