Alta Vista Grande Reserve Malbec Terroir Selection 2005
(search item no. 95684)

PRICE ON 9/18/2014: $24.99

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Malbec hand-picked from 4 distinct estate single vineyards in Mendoza: Alizarine Vineyard and Serenade Vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, and Albaneve Vineyard and Temis Vineyard from the Valle de Uco area.

Alta Vista has long been a pioneer in developing terroir expression. They were the first winery in Argentina to produce and compare single vineyard wines coming exclusively from unique and different Malbec vines all planted in 2001.

Deep violet in color with aromas of spice, ripe fruit and animal notes. Rich and full-bodied on the palate with an elegant presence, soft tannins and a long finish.

This wine will continue to age beautifully for 5–8 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.
