The 5.5 ha Altamira vineyard sits at 1,050m above sea level, in the La Consulta region of the Uco Valley, Mendoza. As ever, Altamira balances innate power with effortless elegance.
Altamira is produced from ungrafted vines of over 80 years are naturally low yielding, producing just 14 hl per ha. 980 cases were produced in 2008, aged for 15 months in 100% new French oak. Opaque plum in colour, with a bright, firm, fuchia rim. The nose presents really attractive, pepper-spiced dark fruit, brooding cherries and, lifting the aromatics, fresh raspberries and hints of citrus. Richly-textured, the palate echoes the nose, adding a clear mineral focus and clear savoury intrigue.
