Winemaker's Notes:

Alto is the quintessence of the best terroirs of Argentina. Deep ruby-red in color with complex aromas of black fruit, spice and hints of chocolate. On the palate it is elegant and full-bodied with silky tannins and a long, intense finish. Alto is a rich, complex and sensual wine with an excellent aging potential of 10-15 years.

About Alta Vista:

Founded in 1997 and owned by the d'Aulan family, former owners of the Piper-Heidsieck Champagne house, Alta Vista is guided by the philosophy of expressing the best terroirs of Argentina and highlighting the typical Argentine varieties: Malbec and Torrontes. The winemaking team's system of terroir management led Alta Vista to produce the very first single-vineyard Malbecs in Argentina. Alta Vista has gained the respect of other wine professionals both in Argentina and in other wine-producing countries on the basis of the quality of its wines, which have been internationally classified as being among Argentina's finest.
