Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Terrior de Uco Valley 2019


Coming from a careful selection of grapes from the oldest geological part of Uco Valley, this Malbec shows a bright red colour with indigo hints. The nose is wide and intense, with aromas of plum and black cherry fruit, as well as notes of spices, cinnamon, eucalyptus and clove. This is a fresh, elegant and subtle wine, with great texture. Tannins are balanced and deliver a round, juicy mouthfeel that makes one want to pour another glass! Ideal to pair with Mediterranean cuisine and red meats.

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.
