Altura Malbec

Region: Argentina / Mendoza / Valle de Uco

Altura means altitude, height above sea level, a combination of daytime solar intensity and atmospheric pressure. Altura was inspired by the connection between soil and elevation and microclimate in a special vineyard located in Uco Valley in Mendoza. This Malbec is sourced from Bodega Norton's Los Chacayes vineyards in the heart of the Uco Valley.
