This wine is deep ruby red in colour, with purple tones and a wonderful display of rich aromas.
The nose is enticing and spicy with floral notes.
The palate is structured with soft tannins that lead to a finish that is fresh, complex and long, with notes of blueberry and blackberry.
The fruit for the Malbec Ultra was sourced from the Uco Valley.
Variations in altitude and soil type result in grapes with distinct characteristics that give unique and highly complex wines. Grapes are sourced from three separate vineyards, at different altitudes: Vista Flores at 1,400 metres above sea level, Gualtallary at 1,300 metres above sea level, and Altamira at 1,100 metres above sea level. In spite of location and altitude variations, all three soil types are similar: alluvial soil with some sand and silt on top of very rocky layers that provide excellent drainage and ideal conditions to grow highly concentrated grapes.
