[ Home > Wines > Malbec Wines > Altos de la Hormigas Malbec Reserve 2009 ]|
100% Malbec grapes come from soils chosen for their similar characteristics in soil profile and low vigor. Vineyard sites are over 800 meters in elevation, located both in Lujan de Cujo, which gives it its fruit forward character, and Valle de Uco, to add spices, backbone and floral notes. These areas include Valle de Uco (Vista Flores, Eugenio Bustos and La Consulta, 50%), Estate (45%) and LujŠn de Cuyo (Perdriel, Agrelo y Vistalba 5%). This Malbec is ruby red in color, with hues of blue and violet. Aromas of ripe red and black fruits, amalgamated with chocolate, coconut and vanilla. A nicely balanced palate, supported by firm tannins on the long, fine finish.
