Description
This wine is produced by the d'Aulan family, former proprietor of Champagne's celebrated Piper-Heidsieck. With an eye to exploring the potential in other regions, the d'Aulans began to branch out across the globe, founding Alta Vista in 1998. The Premium Estate Malbec is their brilliant entry-level Malbec that will suggest vibrant dark fruit with an earthy undertone and fresh acidity. This perfectly embodies the d'Aulan family's desire to combine native Argentine passion with a French outlook.
Tasting Notes
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. Score - 90. (Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com, Dec. 30, 2016)
