The Malbec specialists at Altos Las Hormigas are based in Luján de Cuyo, the only officially recognised appellation in Mendoza. The grapes are sourced from the alluvial terrace of Altamira, lying at 1,200 metres above sea level. The wine is fresh and delicate on the nose showing layers of red cherries and raspberries combined with herbal notes of wild rocket and thyme and a touch of minerality. On the palate it is elegant and supple with fine tannins providing structure. A graceful, complex, deep and structured wine with considerable length.
