Buy Altos Las Hormigas Malbec
Violet vivid colour, truly varietal nose, with notes ofcherry and blackberry, that come out clear and intense. Its true character lies in the palate impression, where structure, freshness and persistence combine giving a very pleasant harmony.
Wine Advocate 87 points - So let’s start with the 2013 Malbec Clasico, a fresh, unoaked Malbec from Medrano in Lujan de Cuyo, with a bright ruby color and notes of red fruit, and piercing acidity. Pleasant, highly drinkable and enjoyable. One for the table. Only 13.7% alcohol, which is quite remarkable for a relatively warm region. Around one million bottles produced. Superb value. Drink now. (Apr 2014)

Wine maker notes
2007 Vintage was defined by a fresh and slightly humid climate, compared with Mendoza standards, therefore its characters are in a way more close to those produced by a Continental climate. Such season has slowed sugar ripening to the advantage of Fenols, which have evolved to their full expression.

Technical notes

Focused on production of Malbec and Bonarda. 100 % Malbec grapes harvested in March and early April. 25% from Medrano vineyards, 60% from grapes from the Consulta, Vista Flores and Eugenio Bustos, in Valle de Uco area.
