Winemaker's Notes:

43 % Malbec, 36 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Syrah, 10 % Petit Verdot.

Aging: 100% in French oak barrels for 12 months.

The malbec brings red fruit and floral aromas while the syrah offers spicy notes. The softness of the Malbec blended with the tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the structure of the Petit Verdot allow a complex and harmonious wine with a long finish.

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.
