I've been a huge malbec lover for a couple of years now. Sometimes when my husband & I want to celebrate, this is the wine for us. I've ordered this consistently from this site and every time it's better. Will be back for more.
Wine Maker Notes
Following a pursuit of quality and innovation, and a mission as Terroir Expression Winemakers®, Alta Vista became the first Argentinean winery to produce single vineyard Malbec wines, each representing the unique characteristics of their high elevation, estate vineyards. The estate’s choice vineyards and terroirs in Mendoza and Salta provinces best highlight the characteristics of Argentina’s typical varieties Malbec and Torrontés, as well as the International varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Among the most awarded wineries from Argentina, Alta Vista continues to earn top accolades, achieving outstanding scores and high praise from wine critics.
Terroir Selection Malbec is made from a blend of four vineyards in Lujan de Cujo and Valle de Uco, each bringing different characteristics to the wine. Lujan de Cujo contributes elements of ripe, mouth filling fruit that is very long on the palate, while Valle de Uco supplies strength and young, primary fruit aromas and roundness in the mouth. Terroir Selection Malbec is aged in French oak barrels (new, one- and two-year old) for 12 months and in bottle for 6 months.
