Malbec Terroir bottle

Altos las Hormigas is a globally-renowned and exciting project involving Alberto Antonini (winemaker/grower) and Pedro Parra (geologist/winemaker). These international superstars are dedicated to exploring the special limestone/clay terroirs of high-altitude Mendoza, and showing that Argentina can produce distinct, world-class wines. The mantra at Altos Las Hormigas is less Malbec, more Argentina. The idea is that fastidious farming on carefully chosen, high altitude limestone terroirs might produce more complex and distinctive wines. The Terroir Malbec is a testament to this ethos: limestone-derived minerallity from the Mendoza subzone of the Uco Valley adds elegance and brightness to the potent cherry and blueberry fruit. Complex elevage adds even more nuance: 50% of this Malbec is aged in cement piletas (pools) for 12 months, 25% in stainless steel vats, and 25% is aged in untoasted large oak foudres. It's a celebration of both grape and place, and we suggest a proper Argentine pairing of grilled meat and chimichurri sauce.
