Atemporal means “timeless”. Alta Vista’s French heritage inspired this site-specific blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Grown exclusively in the Alta Vista Estate Albaneve vineyard located in the Uco Valley, the blend is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months, and made for mid-term aging to allow the flavors to further develop and showcase the terroir of this unique, high-altitude vineyard.

Harvest Note
The 2018 vintage was marked by exceptional quality and reduced yields. Despite facing some challenges, including some frost the overall grape quality was excellent. A warm and dry summer allowed for optimal ripening, leading to wines with intense flavors and balanced acidity, while also lowering yields.
Tasting Note
Complex on the nose due to the three-varietal blend, it exudes notes of violet, pepper, cinnamon and licorice. In the mouth, it is a balanced combination of Malbec's silkiness, Cabernet Sauvignon's power and structure, and Petit Verdot's intensity.

About the Grape

Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is adaptable to various growing conditions, and is known for its low yield and late ripeness. It generally produces full-bodied wines with substantial acidity and tannins.
Well-made Malbec is a dark, perfumed wine with rich, blackberry and damson plum fruit, aromas of violets and tobacco, and ripe, juicy tannins. In France, may be mineral, structured and austere.
