2019 Altos Las Hormigas "Terroir" Malbec Uco Valley

SKU #1655522 93 points Tim Atkin

Outer quote mark Alberto Antonini uses fruit from Gualtallary and Paraje Altamira, two very different Uco Valley sub-regions, to produce this concrete and foudre-aged Malbec. Fresh, elegant and subtle, with an appealing lightness of touch, plum and black cherry fruit and a nuance of oak spice. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 92+ points "The 2019 Malbec Terroir Valle de Uco was produced with grapes from La Consulta and Tupungato on stony soils fermented by plot with indigenous yeasts and matured mostly in concrete (75%) with a part in 3,500-liter oak foudres for 18 months. It has moderate 13% alcohol and a combination of power, elegance and great freshness, reflecting a great vintage. It's articulate and has complexity, and it's open and talks to you with a wide palette of aromas and flavors. It's very fine and elegant and tastes like a much more expensive wine with the freshness from the vintage and the cooler place. It has to be one of the finest vintages of this bottling and a great value too." (LG) Inner quote mark (11/2022)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Malbec Terroir from the Uco Valley was 25% aged for up to eight months in casks. A vivid purple hue. The fairly intense floral nose features violets with fresh plum and hints of herbs. Juicy with quite a smooth texture, a refined flow and moderate grip, it delivers good flavor underlined by a layer of chalk. (JH) Inner quote mark (9/2022)

91 points James Suckling
