Altos Las Hormigas Valle de Uco Malbec Clasico

Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Clásico

£13.00


Categories: , .

Altos Las Hormigas is based in Luján 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 when they first visited in 1995 that they persuaded a few friends to join with them in buying this estate.

The grapes are hand picked in high density vineyards located in the Valle de Uco.
The wine itself has a deep colour, with a brilliant purple rim. An intense nose, with a fine, floral perfume alongside the ripe red fruit. There are hints of undergrowth, graphite and smoked walnut too. The palate is rich and mouth-filling, with smooth tannins that support the wine well. On the finish, alongside the floral and fruit flavours, mineral complexity lingers.
