(V) Alta Vista Premium Estate Malbec 2015
90 Points - Robert Parker
The 2015 Estate Malbec is produced with grapes from the Valle de Uco, in Vista Flores, at over 1,000 meters altitude. It fermented in a mixture of epoxy-lined cement and stainless steel vats, with half of the wine aged in used oak barrels for one year. This is truly subtle and balanced, produced in an elegant style, with perfect integration of the oak, with a slight change in style going for a wine with more tension. The grapes are harvested a little earlier, the wine uses less toasty oak and the grapes are also sourced from cooler vineyards. They have kept the volume and concentration, but made the wines more drinkable. Very drinkable, in fact. This could very well be the best Estate Malbec to date. 400,000 bottles produced. Drink date: 2016-2018.
