User Reviews for Altos las Hormigas Malbec 'Vista Flores' Single Vineyard

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes go through a double selection process and are released by gravity into stainless steel tanks for pre-fermentation maceration at 5°C for 7 days. The alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts at 24°C for 15 days. In order maintain careful, gentle handling, pumping is not used; the cap is rotated by manual pigeage throughout the fermentation, and once this is completed, post-fermentation maceration begins for 4 days. The wine then moves to new barrels of French oak, where malolactic fermentation and ageing takes place for 12 months. The following year, due to the powerful structure of the fruit, the wine is placed in a second set of new oak barrels for 24 months, completing 36 months of aging.

Tasting Notes:

Complex and intriguing, this deep colored 2007 has a bold personality and represents the site specific characteristics of Vista Flores. The intensity of the aromatic profile is characterized by notes of red and black fruits, followed by subtle notes of violets and spice. The fruit and florals follow through on the palate, ending in a crescendo of violets, minerality and the spiciness of well-integrated oak. The texture is firm and round with an elegant tannic structure and a lasting finish. The persistent finish, multiple layers and constant evolution in your glass reflects the strong identity of this wine.
