2011 ACHAVAL FERRER Finca Altimura Malbec Mendoza


$125.00

Size: 750

Altamira is a mountain with extreme weather. Quiet and calm are mixed into the intensity of the peaks of Tunuyan. It is the most symmetrical of the vineyards: it possesses a ray of aromas ranging from black and red fruits to passing flowers to spices and minerals. It is rich, fresh and opulent, complex and fascinating. Like a wise elder, Altamira always has a new story to share.

The 2011 Malbec Finca Altamira is a subzone from La Consulta in the Uco Valley, which is located at 1,050 meters above sea level on the east bank of the Tunuyan River. The soils have big boulders and volcanic ashes, and there is an important component of calcium carbonate. This is the first old vineyard they found, and it produces a very dark-colored, bright, wine with a subtle nose, mixing flowers (violets) and red, blue and black fruit, with hints of spices and a velvety feeling. The palate is medium-bodied, silky, with an impressive acid spine and completely ripe and round tannins. The velvety feeling is also confirmed in the texture, which displays a long tactile sensation mixing electricity, minerality and very good acidity. A superb wine! Drink 2014-2025. Wine Advocate 95 points (Apr 2014)

 Dark and racy, featuring blackberry coulis, black plum skin and cassis notes balanced with fresh acidity and fine tannins. Embedded layers of espresso, flint and floral mark the long, expressive finish. Best from 2014 through 2022. From Argentina.-Wine Spectator 96 points (Aug 28 2013)
