Achaval Ferrer's Altamira 2015 is a single vineyard (finca) red and one of the estate's premium labels.Fruit for the Altamira is grown on the prestigious slopes of the Altamira mountain, where low yields from old vines (80 years old) impart concentrated red and black fruit flavours, floral elements, spice and minerality. It is always rich, fresh, opulent, complex and absolutely compelling, and in 2014 the weather leant itself to an even more elegant, refined style. VEGAN friendly.
THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 95 - Drink Date: 2018 - 2023 - "The nose of the 2015 Malbec Finca Altamira is full of aromas of blood orange and bittersweet cherries, and the palate reveals dusty, slightly grainy tannins and a very pleasant mouthfeel, with balanced acidity. It has some rusticity I had not seen in previous years. There is power and freshness. 12,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2016."
