Wine Altos Las Hormigas, Malbec Terroir Uco Valle, 2016

831 000

This is a Malbec that is a lot more linear and austere, with superb freshness, super fine tannins and a subdued minerality, really serious. The palate is harmonious, balanced and mineral. It's a bargain Malbec, really nuanced and with incipient complexity despite its youth. 93,000 bottles produced. (Courtesy of Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 92 PTS)

Wine Style:

A more modern style of Malbec. Linear and austere, superb freshness, super fine tannins and a subdued minerality, really serious. Oak aged.

Tasting Notes:

The freshness of the Uco Valley invades this wine as it shows the ultimate expression of this special wine region in Mendoza. With an intense ruby red colour, the nose is fruity and delivers notes of chocolates and violets. It has a medium- body palate underpinned by structured tannins, filled with flavours of ripe fruits. The finish is fresh, with a vertical mineral bouquet. It is ideal to pair with Mediterranean cuisine and red meats.

Gastronomy:

It can be paired with a variety of food - chicken liver pate, corvina, even pork and steak dishes.

Vineyards:

Grapes are sourced from a blend of high density vineyards located in the sub-regions of Vista Flores, Paraje Altamira and San Carlos, prime alluvial soils with limestone presence, revealing the red fruit character and the racy personality of Valle de Uco.

Ageing method:

In 2016, a cool year with low yields, they fermented the grapes in small stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts, and 75% of the volume was kept unoaked while the remaining 25% matured in untoasted 3,500-liter oak foudres for 18 months.

Winemaking process:

Grapes from different vineyards are vinified separately before the final blend. The grapes are selected from a double selection table before going into small stainless steel tanks. The alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts at 24-28¡C, for 12 days. Each tank is tasted three times a day to determine what is needed.
