Winemaker Notes

The Altocedro Reserva grapes come from very old vineyards (65+ years) and 100% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. This wine is more complex and stronger and is geared towards a more experienced consumer, who is used to drinking full bodied wines.

Critical Acclaim

Decanter

Very good expression of Malbec. A wonderful concentration exhibiting damson fruit, chocolate and a touch of thyme. Deep and dark, with impressive structure and oak, plus round, voluptuous tannins.
