Altamira Terroir Expressions Malbec 2018
This perfect expression of malbec is hand picked in the heart of the Uco Valley in the sub-region of Altamira and aged for 12 months in oak barrels. A juicy malbec with red fruit, polished tannins, and firm acidity that gives it life and especially nerve. It has a special elegance that distinguishes it. A subtle look at Altamira with berry, mushroom and wet-earth character. Subtle and thought-provoking.
This wine combines elegance and sweetness with gripping flavors of plum, dark berry and a distinctive mineral character; a palate with good complexity, balance and freshness.
This is very Altamira with berry, mushroom and wet-earth character. Yet, it’s reserved and polished with beautiful tannins and balance.
A light ruby color is less dark than most Mendoza Malbecs, while earthy, spicy aromas suggest currant and plum. The palate on this vineyard-specific wine from Altamira is jammy and a touch creamy. Spicy, lightly herbal flavors of plum and red-berry fruits offer a leathery accent. A supple and soft finish says drink now.
