SKU: Malbec_AltosLasHormigas_BTL

Coming from a careful selection of grapes from the oldest geological part of Uco Valley, this Malbec shows a bright red color with indigo hints. The nose is wide and intense, with aromas of plum and black cherry fruit, as well as notes of spices, cinnamon, eucalyptus and clove. This is a fresh, elegant and subtle wine, with great texture. Tannins are balanced and deliver a round, juicy mouthfeel that makes one want to pour another glass! Ideal to pair with Mediterranean cuisine and red meats.


While 100% are from Uco Valley, grapes from different vineyards are vinified separately before the final blend. Grapes are harvested by hand from a blend of high-density vineyards located in the sub-region of La Consulta as well as two areas in Tupungato. These are gravelly, alluvial soils with abundant stones and limestone presence. The grapes are selected from a double selection table before going into small stainless steel tanks. The alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts at 24-26°C, for 15 days. Each tank is tasted two times a day to determine what is needed. It is aged for 18 months in concrete pools (75% of the wine) and untoasted large oak foudres (25% of the wine). Ageing for 6 months in the bottle.
