Altocedro Reserve Malbec 2017
When we say old vine, we're talking 65 years. This brings an amazing concentration of fruit and complexity to the wine. The 2017 vintage, made by leading winemaker Karim Mussi Saffie, is a rich, dynamic wine with ripe dark fruit, plum and raisin flavours and well integrated tannins.
The wines of owner and winemaker Karim Mussi are becoming increasingly sought - after around the world, so we are 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
