The 2021 Appellation Paraje Altamira Malbec was my favorite from this range of Malbecs from different IGs (Indicación Geograficas, the appellations of Argentina), with freshness, elegance, balance, complexity and nuance. It has moderate 13.4% alcohol and very good freshness and acidity (in parameters and in the mouth), and it's clean, precise and ethereal with lots of energy. It is expressive and floral, varietal and with the full chalky texture that is a distinct characteristic of Altamira. It has polished tannins and finished tasty and long. 72,000 bottles were filled in November 2021.

The 2021 Malbec Catena Appellation Paraje Altamira from the Uco Valley was aged for eight months in a third new barrels. Purple in the glass. The nose presents notes of fruit and herbs such as a plum, thyme and hints of violet. In the mouth, the palate is compact with slightly chalky tannins, good juice and regional flavor, which lingers at length.

Plenty of berry flavors with notes of cassis and tobacco fill the mouth. The wine's mineral texture and moderate acidity provide a good frame for its fruit-forward character.
