Zuccardi Aluvional Paraje Altamira Malbec 2011

Zuccardi Aluvional Paraje Altamira Malbec 2011 94 pts Wine Advocate


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts Wine Advocate Issue #212 April 2014
The 2011 Aluvional Altamira is pure Malbec planted at 1,100 meters in soils with big boulders and a high chalk content in Altamira, which produces serious, elegant but a little backward wines. It opens with shy aromas of black cherries and blueberries, ripe, yet terse, vibrant and very harmonious, then moves on to a medium-bodied palate, that is powerful but without showing it in an obvious way. This is a superb example of the character of Altamira through the Malbec grape. Drink now-2020.



Winemaker Notes

Deep red color with violet hues. It expresses a complex fruit character with notes of strawberry, cherry, plum complemented by fresh herbal and floral notes. Great mineral character with wet stone and graphite notes.
The palate has a silky entry, juicy, with a lively acidity, great structured tannins with a long finish.
