Altos Las Hormigas



Terroir Malbec 2010

Grape variety: Malbec 100%
Sight: The geological intensity of Uco Valley is reflected in this deep red, violet hued Malbec.
Nose: Vivid notes of strawberry, ripe cherry and blueberry are wrapped in a balance of smoke, minerality and chocolate, resulting in a complex and elegant Malbec specific to its terroir.

Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda Reserve 2011

Grape variety: Bonarda 100%
Sight: A luminous ruby color.
Nose: The wine opens with penetrating notes of roses, ripe red fruit and spicy black pepper.
Mouth: The silky, elegant palate is a result of a unique ageing process in neutral oak French foudres. The wine finishes with soft, sweet tannins and lively natural acidity.

Reserva Malbec 2009

Grape variety: Malbec 100%
Sight: A brilliant, purple-red Malbec.
Nose: Enticing aromas of flowers, ripe red and black fruits mixed with subtle notes of graphite and flint stone. The complexity of the nose develops further with time and air.
Mouth: The palate is creamy, almost greedy with satisfying volume and softness. Fresh, juicy red fruit in the mouth confirms the first impression on the nose. Round, firm tannins, a backbone of well-integrated acidity and bright fruit present, a complex and balanced wine. The complexity has developed greatly for its ageing in barrel.
