Altamana Grande Reserve Malbec
Altamana Grande Reserve Malbec is from a blend of grapes from our Maule’s Vineyards. Plants are more than 60 years old, located in a temperate area with high thermal amplitude thanks to ocean breezes flowing next to the Andes mountain range.
These vines have naturally low yield, producing grapes of high quality and authenticity. Soils are in part granitic and partly clayish with rocks. In both cases the vines are managed without irrigation because they grew very deep root systems over decades, giving unique character to the grapes.
After 12 months in new French medium toasted oak, these elegantly structured wines retain the pure aromatic expression of the Malbec’s fine tannins.
Grilled beef, chicken, pork.

Wine Advocate – “There is a meaty and smoky feeling that’s a little unusual but makes it very interesting, somewhat reminiscent of a Northern Rhône. The wine is medium-bodied and lively, very drinkable and fresh, with the minerality from the granite.” (90 Pts)
Wine & Spirits – “Fresh berry flavors fill this opulent, purple-fruited malbec. It’s clean in the middle, a little warm in the end, where dusty tannins provide some tension to the structure. Built for roast duck.” (90 Pts)
