Winemaker Notes

Shows complex black fruit aromas, with spice and chocolate notes. The flavors are concentrated, yet elegant and expressive, with silky tannins and a long, intense finish.

As with any great wine, Alto will show at its best when served with the finest foods that are simply prepared. A filet mignon or Chateaubriand grilled medium-rare are perfect, as are lechazo, roast suckling baby lamb or grilled chuletas de cordero, lamb chops.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The flagship 2009 Alto is a blend of 80% Malbec and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged separately in new French oak for 22 months prior to blending. This purple effort displays a superb nose of toasty oak, mineral, exotic spices, and wild berries. Ripe, savory, concentrated, and impeccably balanced, this seamless wine will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring and offer prime drinking from 2016 to 2029, if not longer.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
This is a dark, ambitious red, displaying layered flavors of crushed plum, cassis and boysenberry, framed by judicious toasty oak, smoke and espresso notes and silky tannins through the long finish. For fans of the powerful style. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2015.

Alta Vista Estate Vineyards Winery Image
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.

Argentine

Malbec

View all products

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
