Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Terroir Valle de Uco 2014

Size Pack
750 ml
Case of 12


The grapes for the 2014 Malbec Terroir are sourced from the cooler Valle de Uco within Mendoza, from Tupungato Winelands in Gualtallary, to be precise, where they have very stony soils. 2014 saw a lot of rain—in three weeks they got the equivalent of two years of rainfall—and they decided to harvest earlier to keep the acidity, aiming for lower alcohol and finer tannins. Half of the wine was kept in concrete, while the remaining half was put equal parts in stainless steel and 3,500-liter, mostly untoasted oak foudres for one year. There is good balance between volume and minerality here, between ripeness and subtlety. 49,560 bottles were filled in July 2015. -Luis Gutierrez, Dec 2016
