Alta Vista’s Terroir Selection Malbec thoughtfully blends four estate vineyards in a unique proportion each vitnage. Albaneve and Temis, in different appellations within the Uco Valley, bring tension and structure, while Azamor and Alizarine in Luján de Cuyo bring richness and depth.

2021 vintage
Harvest Note
The 2021 growing season was very typical - allowing for healthy and full maturation of the grapes. The region saw little rain, with warm daytime temperatures and cool nights.
Tasting Note
Elegant and intense on the nose, an attack of black cherry aromas with fresh spice coming through, like thyme and cardamom. A hint of wood, cinnamon and vanilla. On the palate, fresh and lively, yet firm. Polished tannins, the final and perfect touch to this harmonious wine.
