Altos Las Hormigas Vista Flores Single Vineyard
Altos Las Hormigas Vista Flores Single Vineyard Malbec
100% of the Vista Flores Single Vineyard grapes originate from a vineyard located to the west of Vista Flores, identified by Alberto Antonini and Attilio Pagli after many years of investigations all over Valle de Uco. The parcel of land lies within an ancient riverbed in Vista Flores, and the rows were selected through terroir micro-zoning, at an altitude of 1250 meters.This specific area of the vineyard, which is full of round gravel, has a consistent and complex distribution of clay around the gravel, allowing roots to feed in and therefore, go deeper and deeper in to the terroir. This very rare feature gives the wine its special mineral character. Yield: 5.5 To/Ha
Tasting Note: Blue-black in color with violet hues. The nose is complex with notes of blackberry and wild strawberries. The pure fruit character follows through on the palate, mixing with hints of jasmine, white rose and violets, as well as the gentle spiciness of well-integrated oak from 36 months barrel-aging. The mouth feel is opulent with good depth of fruit supported by firm, underlying tannins, and the finish is long, with lasting berry flavors.
