Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Classico 2020

$45.00

This is a Malbec with an intense ruby red color, showing deep violet hues. It is very expressive on the nose, presenting notes of red fruits, plums, cherries and raspberries. It also has subtle aromas of orange rinds and “jarilla”, a typical plant from Mendoza. The entry in the palate is very fresh, with a soft acidity that travels through the mouth. It is a concentrated, juicy and very balanced wine, with a long and pleasant finish. It is ideal to pair with various dishes, from red meats to pasta or grilled vegetables

Winery Profile:
Altos Las Hormigas is located in Luján de Cuyo at about 800 meters above sea level, facing the Andes, protected by a minor geological fold to the west. The farm is 206 hectares, of which 57 hectares are planted with Malbec and 6 hectares with Bonarda. At the heart of the property is the 2,500-square-meter winery, with a traditional design from the area and the best technical conditions for winemaking.

In 2011, after investigating the Terroir with Pedro Parra, 55 ha were acquired in Paraje Altamira, Valle de Uco. A property with micro-terroir in the southwest of the Uco Valley, at 1105 meters above sea level. There, in 2017, we planted our Altamira Garden . A truly unique vineyard project, Altos Las Hormigas’ next revolution in Argentine viticulture . This super calcareous Terroir will produce wines never before seen in Mendoza.
