Winemaker's Notes:

Considered an icon of Argentine high-end wine and quintessence of Alta Vista, Alto is produced only in quality vintages. It is object of all our experience from the vineyard to the bottle. It combines elegance, power and complexity.

Deep ruby red color. Complex aromas of black fruit, spices and chocolate remembrances. The palate is elegant and open, with silky tannins and a long and intense finish.

Blend: 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

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.
