A stunning Malbec that combines fruit from the two best appellations in the Uco Valley - Paraje Altamira and Gualtallary - this is a heady, aromatic, thrillingly well-balanced red with notes of tangerine, fennel and blackberry fruit, filigree tannins and stylish oak.See detailed press review

Luis Gutierrez, December 2016
The 2015 Malbec is an assemblage of old vines from different parts of the Valle de Uco, Gualtallary and La Consulta. There is a slightly blurriness in the nose here, not as focused as previous vintages, a little musky and with hints of decayed flowers. The palate feels better, with good freshness and tasty flavors.See detailed press review
