Awards, Reviews and other Notes

97 pts Wine Advocate Issue #220 aug 2015
If the 2012 was impressive, the 2013 Finca Piedra Infinita is otherworldy! This comes form one very specific plot of 10-year-old vines planted at 7,000 plants per hectare in a section that was never planted in Altamira, a difficult section, with a very stony soils. Being virgin soils the roots go down very quickly and deep. This is also the chalkier part of Altamira. There is high finesse here, pure, with more tension than in 2012. The nose is subtle, with the violets and the blueberries but also an herbal part, a vegetal side of aromatic herbs and also some subtle minerality. This is more restrained than exuberant. The finish is mineral, tasty and to the point of being almost salty, with tannins that remind you of pure chalk. The soil sensation here is greater than in the Aluvional Altamira and that's the main difference between the wines. This certainly goes beyond Malbec. They produced some 2,500 liters of wine here, so around 3,000 bottles were filled.
