From the newly designated sub-appellation Paraje Altamira in the Uco Valley. Available exclusively at restaurants and wine bars.
Notes of black cherry and dark berry with hints of violet, vanilla, and mocha. Deep and dense on the palate with round tannins. This is a great expression of Malbec from the sunny days and cold nights of Altamira.
Pairs well with steak, pork dishes, and chicken in rich sauces.
The vineyards in Altamira (Uco Valley) are composed of shallow, rocky, alluvial soils that are irrigated by the Andes snowmelt.
