Wine Altos Las Hormigas, Malbec Clasico 1.5L, 2017

1 127 000

This vintage of our Malbec Clasico is fully representative of Altos Las Hormigas style. It is a joyful and fresh expression of Mendoza Malbec. Displaying a bright ruby red colour, this wine has a fruity nose of plums and raspberries complemented with herbal notes. The first palate shows supple tannins with a balanced acidity that is the secret of its freshness. Notes of crisp red fruits fill the mouth, with a soft texture and a long finish. This is a pleasant wine, ideal to pair with various dishes, from red meats to pasta or grilled vegetables.

Vineyards:

Finca Altos Las Hormigas (Lujan de Cuyo) is situated about 800 meters (2624 ft.) above sea level. The radical changes that we introduced in viticulture led us to produce wines that break away from the industrial, highly productive tradition of the area. Here we looked for deep, fresh soils, with low clay content. These are silty loams with high calcium carbonate content. Our Terroir driven viticulture, with small irrigation plots, and a natural viticulture aimed at developing a deep and healthy root system allowed us to produce highly drinkable wines, with tension and finesse.

Ageing method:

Aged for 9 months in cement tanks (no wood ageing)

Winemaking process:

Double selection process of grapes after release by gravity into small concrete containers. The alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts at 24_C for 15 days. In order to maintain careful, gentle handling, pumping is not used. The cap is rotated by manual pigeage throughout the fermentation. Coarse filtration prior to bottling.
