Reaping the rewards of diligent hard work and unbridled vision, Altos Las Hormigas have been consistently releasing sensational wines for a number of vintages. Their 2018 Gualtallary Malbec, however, is remarkable. Receiving an astonishing 97 points, its highest score ever, Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate) praised the wine’s “textured palate and very tasty and clean flavours in the finish”.

The estate’s very low-yielding Gualtallary vineyards sit at 1,300 metres above sea level. This high altitude combined with varying temperatures and loamy soils push Malbec to its limits, resulting in wines with power, elegance and a kaleidoscope of flavours. The intensity and structure of this wine combine effortlessly so that whilst it is drinking beautifully now, it will cellar most comfortably up to 2030.

About Altos Las Homigas

Altos Las Hormigas is very much a key member of the unofficial consigliere of fiercely ambitious Argentine producers, making more nuanced and elegant Malbec. With more restrained oak influence and a greater focus on the expression of their incredible terroir, Altos Las Hormigas is redefining the varietal most certainly for the better. South America's leading terroir consultant, Pedro Parra, has championed this Mendoza winery and, very excitingly, Tim Atkin MW has awarded Altos Las Hormigas First Growth status in his influential 'Special Argentina Report 2020'.
