'Aged only in concrete and given a fair bit of whole bunch. It’s very different in style to the usual (often oak lashed) Argentinian Malbecs. Grown at 1100m ASL at Paraje Altamira, in the Uco Valley. Importer: Langton’s
Impressive dark purple. Grilled meat and aromatic dried herbs, stones and ash, spice, violet, red and black fruit. Medium bodied, dry and savoury, massed with meat and dried herbs, though the fruit is there too, trails of dusty chalky tannin, and a distinct and impressive stony minerality throughout. Lovely fine ‘mineral water’ kind of acidity (maybe makes not much sense, but so pure and clean is what it is). Finish is firm and very chalky. Super savoury and superb.'
