Malbec Terroir, Gualtallary, Altos las Hormigas - 2018

From a great altitude terroir (1300 metres!), this great Malbec de terroir presents complex notes of spices and iron oxide, which form a complex nose. On the palate, the attack is supple, with black berries and spices. It is a very structured and rather wild wine, with firm and fine tannins, classic of the great terroirs rich in limestone. Built for long ageing, it will reveal all its breed with ageing! 97/100 Wine Advocate

Viticulture

Gualtallary's silty terroir, located at an altitude of 1,300 metres. The soil is composed of pebbles and gravel covered with limestone which occupy 50 to 70% of the volume of the soil, with a high percentage of free calcium carbonate in the profile giving the wine a chalky and fresh minerality.

Oenology

The grapes undergo a double selection and are vatted by gravity in small concrete tanks. Alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts at 24°C for 15 days. In order to maintain a gentle extraction, pumping over is not used; the cap is worked by hand punching down throughout the fermentation. The wine was aged in 3,500 litre tuns for 22 months and then 6 to 12 months in bottle.

Suggestions for accompaniment

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