When you blend grapes you are taking all of the character from each one and putting them together to make a wine with masses of complexity. What we love about this wine is the balance, it is so soft and smooth and almost subtle but those flavours are all there, waiting to be discovered.
Producer Altocedro is a real success story in Argentina and has been described by Wine Spectator as “representing real artisanal winemaking, a boutique operation with some serious talent behind the wheel”.
Made from a blend of 60% Malbec, 25% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon from grapes grown at a whopping 1100 metres above sea level. Ripe summer fruits dominate with warming spice and a structure rarely found with single varietal Malbec. If you think you don’t like blends then we urge you to try this, we think you will be converted forever.
