Altar Uco Edad Moderna Malbec 2020

€29.95
In stock
The first aromatic expression of this red reveals it as a land wine, with elegant aromas reminiscent of herbs and wet mud, and notes of thyme, red and black fruits, and some jam. Its entry into the mouth is frank, clean, fresh and direct; round but at the same time with nerve. Fine tannins, medium to wide mouth and acidity that makes it a true gastronomic wine. A red wine that invites you to pour yourself another glass, yet with a simplicity that makes it complex.

Celebrated for its bold flavours and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
"Altar Uco is the latest endeavor from beloved Tupungato-based winemaker Juan Pablo Michelini. Affectionately known as Juampi to those who’ve had the pleasure of spending any time with him, he also serves as the head winemaker at his family’s winery, Zorzal. However, this project offers a fresh perspective on what the Uco Valley and more specifically Gualtallary means in the greater conversation on South American wine. Juampi explained to us that he aims to produce “quiet wines” which require as little human intervention as possible – they are made in one or two months before spending years at rest.” – Skurnik

Critics Review 91 Points - Robert Parkers Wine Advocate
The young and tender 2020 Edad Moderna Malbec feels a bit raw and wild, showing the character of the place. It is a bit riper, reflecting a warmer and drier year, showing notes of licorice and black cherries. It fermented in raw concrete, where it matured for eight months. It's a bit chewy with faint rusticity, and it developed balsamic nuances with time in the glass.
