    A fantastic vintage for our Paraje Altamira Malbec, which shows as much complexity, concentration, and texture as this appellation can deliver; without resigning drinkability nor grace. It has a deep ruby red color with soft violet hues. The nose is intense and elegant, with aromas of black fruits, cassis and plums, as well as herbal aromas, mainly eucalyptus. Subtle notes of chalk and orange peel begin to show as the wine opens in the glass. The attack is impressive; it is juicy, fresh and vertical in the palate. It has great texture, notes of chalk and a long and velvety finish that leaves you with a watering mouth and a smile on your face.

    1. JS

      Loving the depth and the austerity on the nose. This is always very fresh and authentic, showing blueberries, strawberries and violets, together with hints of roasted licorice and white-pepper stemminess. Medium-to-full-bodied with a fine delivery of tannins. Juicy and linear. Agile and drinkable, as always. More academic than hedonistic.

      The 2019 Malbec Appellation Paraje Altamira is made with grapes from the eponymous Uco Valley GI and aged for 18 months in untoasted foudres. A rich violet in hue. The subtle, clean and austere nose offers notes of plum and cherry along with violet and herb aromas against a cedar backdrop. In the mouth, the core is provided by a juicy freshness while the texture is chalky. A little reactive grip makes for a compact, nimble and linear flow that guarantees it will grow in the bottle. Fresh grapes appear at the back of the throat enhanced by the tannins. Keep for a while before drinking to allow its subtle character to develop properly.
