Wine Altos Las Hormigas, Malbec Reserva, 2014

1 274 000

Complexity and a very present local character. The mountains, the altitude and the limestone soils grant this Malbec diverse layers. It is worth giving the wine some time to slowly unveil. The presence of limestone soils in the Uco Valley is profoundly noticeable in this wine. The combination of mineral character, freshness and very fine grain tannins, present and structured, with a nice length and a chalky sensation on the palate, take this Malbec to the next level, the mineral dimension.

Tasting Notes:

The combination of mineral character, freshness and very fine grain tannins, present and structured, with a good length and a chalky sensation on the palate, take this Malbec to the next level, the mineral dimension.

Gastronomy:

It can be served with grilled red meats, also fantastic with black roasted, grilled tenderloin, lamb stew or rabbit. Steamed vegetables.

Vineyards:

100% calcareous soil of Uco Valley, limestones over alluvial deposits of the Tunuyan River in Altamira, the alluvial terrace of Arroyo Grande in Vista Flores, and the alluvial with calcareous highlands of Gualtallary. The terraces contain medium pebbles with occasional boulders covering calcium carbonate paste of around 7-10% active lime which contributes structure, texture and a long, impressive finish.

Ageing method:

Matured in 3,500 ltr untoasted foudres for 18 months, and six months in the bottle.

Winemaking process:

Grapes were harvested by hand with delicate and conscious bunch selection. During fermentation, pigeage and a very gentle treatment were used on the cap to avoid over-extraction. The juice fermented using native yeast, with no corrections of tartaric acid.

Interesting notes:

2014 vintage: The season began with severe frosts that lowered yields by 30%. November brought a few dry Zonda winds that challenged the flowering stage and lowered yields even more. December and January brought heatwaves and late Summer rains and lowered temperatures moved into the region just before harvest. In three weeks the region received levels equivalent to two years worth of rain. Therefore grapes harvested prior to mildew or rot setting in were showing admirable level of acidity, lower alcohol content and fine tannins.
