Winemaker Notes

With its intense, lively dark ruby color, this wine offers to the nose raspberry, morello cherry and floral notes. In the palate, it is complex, with well-rounded tannins and great balance. The finish is intense and lingering.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Deeply colored and well-oaked, with an aroma of dark fruit and flavors of kirsch, plum and raspberry tart. Offers intense Asian spice and tar notes midpalate, finishing with concentrated dark chocolate and cream accents, offset by a hint of citrus peel. Drink now through 2020.

Altamana Altamana Constanza Vineyard Winery Image

Altamana was established in 2012 with the goal of resurrecting century-old Malbec vines planted by the pioneers of the Chilean wine industry.

Founders Count Patrick d'Aulan and Didier Debono have a successful track record together, most recently with highly acclaimed Alta Vista Winery in Mendoza, Argentina, owned by d'Aulan with Debono as Consulting Winemaker. Alta Vista was the first to craft single vineyard Malbec wines from Argentina; these wines have become benchmarks, achieving some of the highest ratings ever awarded to Argentine wines. The rediscovery of Chile's rare and historic old Malbec vineyards could not be in better hands.

Maule is the Central Valley’s most southern and coolest zone, reaching a southern latitude of 35°S, yet it is still warmer and drier than Bío-Bío to its south. The Maule Valley enjoys success with a unique set of grapes.

It lays claim to the local variety, Pais (synonymous with Tinta Pais, which is actually Tempranillo), which has dominated much of the region’s area under vine until the recent past. Now many growers, not confined by the tradition and regulations of the Old World, also successfully grow Cabernet Sauvignon.

While Maule’s total area under vine remains relatively static, its old Carignan vineyards are undergoing a great revival. The VIGNO (Vignadores del Carignan Vintners) group, an association in charge of promoting this long-forgotten variety, is getting fantastic results from the old vines in its dry-farmed coastal zones.

The Maule includes the subregions of Talca, San Clemente, San Javier, Parral, Linares and Cauquenes.

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.
