Malbec Jardin de Hormigas, Los Amantes, Altos las Hormigas - 2021

This very rare cuvée is made from organic grapes from plot number 15 of the Jardín Altamira vineyard. It has a big, open cherry nose, like a wine from Etna, intense, exotic and sanguine. The tannins are incredibly fine, different from the other wines in the range, with an exacerbated fruitiness, as if we were changing grape varieties. It's very juicy and seductive!

Viticulture

The grapes come from a small plot of just over one hectare in the southern sector of Jardín Altamira, located in Paraje Altamira (Uco Valley) at an altitude of 1,200 metres. This area is very special because of the heterogeneous soil profiles created by the river currents that formed the alluvial fan. On the plot, the soil profile shows 80 centimetres of silt-rich topsoil with dissolved limestone and, from there, large granitic rocks with associated limestone. The entire vineyard is organic.

Oenology

The grapes from this terroir were harvested at an ideal stage of ripeness. Vinified for 25 days in epoxy-free concrete vats. Fermented with 15% whole bunches and indigenous yeasts. The temperature was maintained at 26°C throughout the process, in order to preserve the purity of the vineyard aromas. It was then matured in 3,500-litre French oak tuns without toasting for 15 months. It underwent very gentle filtration before being bottled, where it underwent a second 12-month ageing period.

Suggestions for accompaniment

To be enjoyed after an hour in a carafe with grilled red meat (steak, entrecote, roast beef).
