"Seeing the differences between the Appellation Malbecs in 2013 is splitting hairs. The 2013 Malbec Appellation Altamira is sourced from the alluvial terraces of the Tunuyán River in Altamira where the soils are very rich in calcium carbonate, the ideal for Altos las Hormigas in terms of elegance and minerality. The wine matured in untoasted 3,500-liter French oak foudres, like all in this range. There's more peach here compared to the florals of the Gualtallary, and it feels a little less ripe than the Vista Flores. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity and very fine tannins. It ends with a chalky minerality that sticks to your teeth. Great terroir Malbec at an incredible price. 5,532 bottles produced.

Altos las Hormigas continues the path of elegance, balance and chalky minerality in their wines. The Appellation bottlings are very good. Unfortunately, I didn't get to taste their Bonarda, which is one of the benchmark wines for the variety. 1,200,000 bottles in total. Drink 2015-2025" - Robert Parker


"Elegant is the best way to describe this wine. Like a ballet dancer, full of
strength and muscle – but linear, graceful and delicate. Deep ruby with hints
of purple, with a captivating nose of freshly picked fruit, crisp plums, and
fields of wild flowers. This Malbec dances on your palate, with round, silky,
elegant tannins. The finish is long and complex, drawing you in for the next
sip." - The Winery
