Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Reserve 2020


This Malbec has a bright red color and a very intense first nose. Aromas of black fruits, such as blueberries and cherries, are complemented by notes of violets, white pepper, and aromas of the foothills of Mendoza’s mountains, typical of wines from calcareous soils. The fruit is the central character when the wine enters the mouth, with an acidity that works like a train that goes through different stations until it reaches the end of the palate, where the wine remains for a long time showing tension and a fine texture.

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.
