Altocedro Reserva Malbec 2004
Aged for 12 months in oak with deeply saturated blue-purple color which attests to the wine's power and concentration. The palate shows flavor of pure ripe berry and plum, with a nuance of sweet tobacco. The tannins are rounded and develop generously into a rich mouth-filling finish.
All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand using no machinery in the process. The vines range up to 70 years of age, with only 1,600 plants per acre, and strict harvesting of only 1.2 kg of grapes per vine. The extract is done with a gravity flow system developed at the winery over 100 years ago.
