This Malbec is 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 ia great expression of Malbec from the sunny days and cold nights of Altamira.
Pairs well with steak, pork dishes, and chicken in rich sauces.
A wine sold mostly in restaurants, the 2018 Malbec Paraje Altamira is juicy and showcases the expression of the grape in the limestone-rich soils of Altamira in Valle de Uco. It has good freshness, and the ripeness is contained, coming through as tasty and easy to drink, quite good for the by-the-glass market.The Wine Advocate October 2019
