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.
