This luminous cherry coloured Malbec with pink hues offers a delicate bouquet of redcurrant, minty blackberry leaves and tenuous smoky notes.

Aromas of passion fruit, accompanied by gentle white pepper follow.

The palate is light bodied, silky with very delicate tannins, along with mango and plum notes.

On the finish, sweet spices and dried herbs linger with a natural acidity.

Producer Information

Altos Las Hormigas is based in Lujan de Cuyo, the only officially recognised appellation in Mendoza and one of the region's premier vine growing areas. The estate is known as a Malbec specialist with a reputation as one of the country's top five producers of this particular variety. Alberto Antonini and fellow Tuscan, Antonio Morescalchi, were so impressed with the vineyards in the area around Mendoza, following their first trip to Argentina in 1995, that they persuaded a few friends to join with them in buying this estate. The estate covers 216 hectares, of which 40 were planted between 1996 and 1999.
