2017 Alta Vista Terroir Selection Malbec (750ml)

Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina


The 2017 Terroir Selection Malbec blends grapes from their vineyards in different subzones of Mendoza. 2017 was a classical dry and warm Mendoza year with low yields after some frost. All Malbec, 65% of the grapes come from the Albaneve vineyard (Campo de los Andes, Valle de Uco), 15% come from the Azamor vineyard (Las Compuertas, Luján de Cuyo), 12% from the Alizarine vineyard (Las Compuertas, Luján de Cuyo) and 8% from the Temis vineyard (El Cepillo, Valle de Uco). The blend fermented in concrete vats and matured in new, second and third use French oak barrels for 12 months. It's varietal and floral, with contained ripeness. It also has elegance with power and a round palate with polish. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019.

A delicious, silky red with aromas and flavors of blackberries and black tea with slate. Medium-bodied, firm and pretty. Drink now.
