Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 94 Points
A wine that always shows backward and closed early on, but then has a great aging potential is the 2013 Aluvional Altamira. This is a blend of Malbec from different plots of vineyards in Altamira, one of the zones of the Uco Valley with more calcium carbonate content in the soil that provides the wine an earthy, chalky minerality plus very fine-grained tannins and a suppleness that is almost salty. The nose is a mixture of aromatic herbs, violets, blueberries and blood oranges (a fresh sensation, almost citric, but somehow red fruit-driven). Precision, austerity and subtleness, with great inner strength. These wines feel light, but they are powerful and concentrated, more than you might think so. It certainly has the stuffing and balance to develop nicely in bottle. 7,000 bottles produced.
