Alta Vista Malbec Terroir Selection 2009

Alta Vista Malbec Terroir Selection 750ml 2009     
Sku: 1743731

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Terroir Selection Malbec is made from a blend of four vineyards in Lujan de Cujo and Valle de Uco, each bringing different characteristics to the wine. Lujan de Cujo contributes elements of ripe, mouth filling fruit that is very long on the palate, while Valle de Uco supplies strength and young, primary fruit aromas and roundness in the mouth. Terroir Selection Malbec is aged in French oak barrels (new, one- and two-year old) for 12 months and in bottle for 6 months.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Oct 2012)
The 2009 Alta Vista Terroir Selection Malbec comes mostly from the Albaneve vineyard, augmented by fruit from Serenade, Alazarine and Temis vineyards. It is aged in French oak for 12 months. It has a lifted, airy, blackberry and briary bouquet with a touch of coconut in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins and subtle notes of crushed stone and cedar. However, I feel that it is just missing a little weight and presence on the back end. Still, this is a fine Malbec. Drink now-2016.
