Alta Vista’s Vive Malbec exhibits the true character of its grape variety. Fresh and intense, this wine’s aromas and flavors provide an excellent introduction to the fresh, fruit forward characteristics and overall quality of wines from Argentina.

Harvest Note
Heavily affected by La Nina, 2023 was one of the driest and lowest yielding vintages of the last 20 years. The cool, dry winter led to a warm, dry summer. Drought and frost reduced yields while the warmth accelarated harvest. All resulting fruit is excellent, though scarce.
Tasting Note
Intense red fruit aromas, specifically plum, with hints of vanilla and a subtle trace of coffee. Young, bright and explosive in the mouth. To be served at cool temperatures to highlight the freshness.
