Altura Malbec Valle de Uco 2019
This Malbec displays a remarkable intensity of fruit, combining flavours of damsons and mulberries, offset by complex mineral and earthy notes. The medium to full-bodied palate is resplendent with velvety smooth tannins which coat the mouth, alongside a vibrant seam of acidity which runs through to a spicy finish.
