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.
The 2019 season was warm and dry throughout the growing season allowing for optimal ripening conditions in Mendoza. Throughout the harvest period, there was no rainfall allowing the harvest and vinification to take place without any obstacles to achieving excellent quality.
This Malbec has intense red fruit aromas, specially plums, with hints of vanilla and a subtle trace of coffee. It is young, explosive and bright in mouth. Fruit and wood flavors can be perceived thanks to its sweet and round tannins.
Match this Malbec with typical Argentinean food or a tray of cheese and cold cuts.
