From a single site in Uco Valley's Paraje Altamira, this Malbec (plus 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Ancellotta) was grown at 1100 m on alluvial/calcareous laced soils. After native ferment, this sat on skins for 20 days before transfer to concrete and barrels for MLF and a rest prior to bottling. Perfumed and flush with purple florals, blueberries, blue plums, blackberries, the medium-bodied, tight palate is scratchy with texture and studded with stones. Tannins are gritty and acidity is edgy; all in check with the bright fruit and weight (a welcome 13.6 degrees) of this new wave Argentine red.
