Quick Overview

Opaque black in colour, with flashes of violet and an ethereal, highly complex nose with notes of red and black fruits, spices, smoke, forest groves and sweet, fresh wood. The palate has excellent breadth and depth of juicy fruit. The acidity is fresh and the tannins are firm but fine-textured, supporting the berry flavours well on the long, elegant finish.

Details

Altos Las Hormigas is based in Luján de Cuyo, the only officially recognised appellation in Mendoza and one of the regions premier vine growing areas. The estate is known as a Malbec specialist with a reputation as one of the country's top five producers of this particular variety.

Alberto Antonini and fellow Tuscan, Antonio Morescalchi, were so impressed with the vineyards in the area around Mendoza, following their first trip to Argentina in 1995, that they persuaded a few friends to join with them in buying this estate. The grapes are harvested by hand from high density vineyards located in the Valle de Uco sub-regions of Vista Flores, Altamira and Eugenio Bustos. Yield: 9 ton/ha.
