Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Gualtallary 2019


This is an explosive wine that fills all your senses. A brilliant Malbec with a deep ruby color, showing also rich violet hues. The nose is herbaceous and shows fruity and saline notes, with very present aromas of graphite, as well as thyme, blueberries, plums and violets. The complexity on the nose is also appreciated on the mouth. This is a structured and vertical wine, with firm tannins. It has a great grip on the palate and a long, fruity finish with mineral notes, typical of its place of origin: a vineyard with limestone soils in the heights of the Uco Valley.

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.
