Winemaker Notes

Ruby-colored, with complex, ripe, red fruit aromas and spicy nuances. This Estate Malbec is round, with soft tannins and good, balanced concentration in the mouth.

This wine pairs very well with grilled pork tenderloin, lamb and veal with fresh herbs.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Estate Malbec is produced with grapes from the Valle de Uco, in Vista Flores, at over 1,000 meters altitude. It fermented in a mixture of epoxy-lined cement and stainless steel vats, with half of the wine aged in used oak barrels for one year. This is truly subtle and balanced, produced in an elegant style, with perfect integration of the oak, with a slight change in style going for a wine with more tension. The grapes are harvested a little earlier, the wine uses less toasty oak and the grapes are also sourced from cooler vineyards. They have kept the volume and concentration, but made the wines more drinkable. Very drinkable, in fact. This could very well be the best Estate Malbec to date.

Alta Vista Winery Video
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.

Mendoza Wine

Argentina

View all products

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
