The limestone starts in the Reserva/Reserve range, of which I tasted the 2018 Malbec Reserve, which is produced from vineyards on limestone soils in Altamira and Gualtallary. This is incredibly elegant, floral and expressive, with superb minerality on the palate. It has fine-grained tannins and is silky, tasty, long and expressive. Superb! This wine is all about texture, and it's the best reserve I ever remember.

In its current era, ALH is focused on producing styles that reflect the terroir in new ways. A blend of grapes from Gualtallary and Paraje Altamira, the Reserve was aged in foudres for 18 months. Bright, purplish red. The fruit on the nose is hidden behind aromas of violet and herbs plus a hint of cherry. The vertical palate revolves around freshness and chalky tannins. This is a reductive, skinny red, all bone and tension. For drinkers who follow the latest trends.
