Altocedro Ano Cero Malbec 2018

The wines of owner and winemaker Karim Mussi are becoming increasingly sought-after around the world, so importer Condor Wines feel honoured to be representing his wines in the UK.

‘Everything we do at Altocedro - everything our hands touch – is driven by terroir... We make wine that speaks distinctly of the place it originates, which only makes sense since Altocedro wines are crafted in the finest winegrowing region in Argentina......La Consulta, Uco Valley’ - Karim Mussi.

“Altrocedro represents real artisanal winemaking, a boutique operation with some serious talent behind the wheel” – Wine Spectator.

Blend: 100% Malbec

Location: La Consulta, Uco Valley, Mendoza

Country: Argentina

Vintage: 2018

Alcohol: 14.5% ABV

Viticulture:

For this Malbec, they selected vineyards of an average age of 30 years. The characteristics of the soils and the force of the vines achieve the perfect balance of concentration and freshness that they need for this line of wines, as the grapes allow them to bring the maximum points of maturity between aromas, sugar and phenols.

Vinification:

Entire berry fermentation takes place in small concrete vats, over 7 days at 25°C, four pump overs a day. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and 30% is aged for 8-10 months in French oak.

Tasting Note:

A ripe, juicy and rich wine displaying concentrated dark fruits, a savoury complex edge, full bodied with rounded tannins and spice on the finish.

Food Match:

Roast beef or venison, barbequed lamb or pork, steak, game, cheddar cheese
