It's tremendously expressive and aromatic, and it seems to transcend the vintage. They couldn’t make the wine in 2016 because of the adverse conditions, but they came back really strong with this 2017, which has a chalky texture and a dry, austere and long finish. Really very good. - LG

In the case of Appellation Altamira, the new approach is clear: a fresh Malbec harvested slightly early. The nose is dominated by notes of violet, licorice and sour cherry. Austere on the palate, in the mouth it is all juice and chalky tannins with an electric acidity. Self-consciously modern, this opens up a whole new world for your average Malbec drinker. -- Joaquín Hidalgo
