Allamand Altamira Malbec

2013

Colour: Red

Altamira, a very small micro zone inside Valle de Uco, is slowly becoming famous because of its ability to produce wines that are very distinct and that show a good deal of mineral characteristics. The reason being is the fact that the soil in this very small area is extremely poor and comprised of about 20 centimetres of top soil followed by big rocks with a good amount of reactive calcareous component attached to them.

The grapes used for this wine were hand harvested in small 15 kg trays on April 16th and 17th2013, at a yield of approximately 2.4 tons per acre. Then 50% of the wine spent 12 months in first and second year French oak barrels, and then 9 months in the bottle before its release to the market. Total production of Allamand Altamira Malbec 2013 was only 14,424 bottles, savour it!
