Malbec Paraje Altamira, Altos las Hormigas - 2019

Among the range of great wines of the estate, Altamira is a standout! Finesse and structure are one of the most difficult combinations to achieve in a wine. This wine achieves this unique combination with a multi-faceted, subtle and graceful vintage, but with a strong structure that supports and lengthens the mouth and evokes the soil of limestone origin. This is a wine where patience is rewarded by the nuances that show up in the glass. 96/100 Wine Advocate.

Viticulture

Comes from the alluvial terrace of Altamira, located at an altitude of 1,200 metres. The soil is composed of 3% clay in the fine matrix with pebbles and gravel covered with limestone that occupy 85% of the soil volume, giving the wine its elegance and minerality. Organic and biodynamic cultivation.

Oenology

The grapes undergo a double selection and are released by gravity into small concrete containers. Alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts at 24° C for 15 days. To ensure gentle handling, pumping over is not used; the cap is suspended by manual punching down throughout fermentation. The wine was aged in 3500 litre tuns for 18 months and 12 months in bottle. There was a coarse filtration before bottling, to avoid any interference with the quality of the wine.

Suggestions for accompaniment

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