Altos Las Hormigas

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'. 

 

The Vineyards and the Wines

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 pushes 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 reward cellaring to fully realize its potential.

Concentration is easy to achieve in Argentina,” says Alberto Antonini, “but texture is much harder.” All I can say is that he has succeeded here on this best-ever release from Altos Las Hormigas, which brings Burgundian levels of grace and complexity to Malbec. Scented, hauntingly graceful and complex with remarkable focus and depth, a hint of oak, sweet red fruits and a lingering finish. Exceptional winemaking.
