About

94

The 2015 Malbec Reserve was produced with grapes from limestone-rich soils in Altamira and Gualtallary. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in untoasted 3,500-liter oak foudres for 22 months. This is always a serious and mineral wine, a Malbec that overdelivers, especially in a cool year like this, with the verticality from Gualtallary that is the majority of the blend. It's like an upgraded version of the Terroir Valle de Uco bottling, even if it's from a slightly riper year. But Altos Las Hormigas is one of the first to harvest in Mendoza. The price is just unbelievable. 28,167 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2017.

Product Description:

"This wine is the clear expression of limestone soils in the Uco Valley. It has a deep ruby red color with violet hues; it is lively and attractive. The nose is complex, expressive and aromatic. This is a vertical Malbec with very fine grain tannins and velvety texture. The palate shows abundant ripe fruit notes and its oak aging only appears subtly in the finish. A long and persistent wine that will open in the glass." - Winery
