Food Pairings for Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Reserva
Grapes from different plots are vinified separately before the final blend. The destemmed and softly pressed grapes go into small stainless steel tanks for 2 days at 10°c, for cold maceration. Alcoholic fermentation then begins using native yeasts whilst cap management is conducted with rack-and-returns. The time between crushing and pressing is approximately 20 days. Immediately after malolactic fermentation the wine moves to tight grain, French oak barrels (50% new, 50% second use) for 18 months.
A brilliant, purple-red Malbec with an enticing nose of flowers, ripe red and black fruits mixed with subtle notes of graphite and flint stone. The complexity of the nose develops further with time and air. The palate is creamy, almost greedy with satisfying volume and softness. Fresh, juicy red fruit in the mouth confirms the first impression on the nose. Round, firm tannins, a backbone of well-integrated acidity and bright fruit present a complex and balanced wine. The complexity has developed greatly by ageing in barrel. This multi-layered wine benefits greatly from decanting an hour before drinking. The wine will continue to evolve for 7 to 10 years if well maintained.
