Altos las Hormigas, Malbec Clásico Mendoza '18


Altos las Hormigas, Malbec Clásico Mendoza '18

Argentinian Malbec is constantly on the forefront for great value and have proven to be an excellent companion as an everyday selection for wine.  Altos las Hormigas fall nothing short of that statement.  Malbec's diversity makes it great with or without food, and has deemed itself as one of the ultimate crowd pleasers across an array of palates.  

Even for such an incredible value, Altos Hormigas takes great pride and care in their viticultural practices.  Everything is done with terroir in mind; completely hand harvested, grapes that are sorted through twice over, and only indigenous yeasts used.  In addition, minimal extraction, neutral oak and very little sulfites are a few more techniques to mention that are being implemented.  From the winery: "We believe that each intervention on the wine means a step away from its origin. No intervention is impossible, but we try to do as little as possible in winemaking."

"Clásico" Malbec showcases the vibrant, minimalistic style of the grape.  Fermented in tank and aged for several months in concrete vats allows this bottling to preserve the vitality and freshness of Malbec through such an unadulterated approach.  The wine displays characteristic notes of Malbec in a silky, concentrated format.  Red plums and berries, with a hint of peppery spice are highlights on both the nose and palate.
