This is a single-vineyard wine in the Paraje Altamira district planted at 1029 metres above sea level. Chalky dry with mocha and spice and black fruit on the nose and palate of this full-bodied Argentine red wine made from the classic Malbec grape. The wine is aged for 12 months in French and America oak barrels, and the grapes are harvested in April.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

An elegant Mendoza Malbec, crafted from hand-harvested, single vineyard grapes, aged 12 mos in oak. Lots of ripe plum with dark chocolate and mocha aromatics and an intensely flavourful, fruity palate, satiny texture and mocha finish. Pair with prime rib or rack of lamb.
