Alta Vista Malbec Single Vineyard Alizarine 2009

Alta Vista Malbec Single Vineyard Alizarine 750ml 2009     
Sku: 1743732

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Single Vineyard Alizarine was introduced in 2001, making Alta Vista the first Argentine winery to produce single vineyard wines. Utilizing their tailored Terroir Management system for wine growing and winemaking, Alta Vista uses grapes grown in distinctive sites to craft these unique wines that show the true characteristics of each vineyard. All Single Vineyard wines are aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in bottle.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Dec 2011)
The 2009 Alizarine Single Vineyard comes from a parcel just in front of the Cheval des Andes vineyard and planted in 1927. It received the same elevage as the other single vineyard wines. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sports aromas of Asian spices, lavender, and assorted black fruits. In the glass it is a slightly narrow offering coming down more on the side of power than elegance. It mandates 3-4 years of additional cellaring, at which point it may display the complexity of the other single vineyard bottlings.
