Uko Old Vines Malbec 2018

Paraje Altamira, Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaSandy, loamy soils over stones are the story of Altimira. Add in older malbec vines, and you have a recipe for quality. Post ferment this spends 18 months in new French oak barrels. The palate is silky smooth with spicy black cherry, blackberry, and black plum with a line of umami, savoury desert running through it. Impressive styling and finesse, and while it’s warm, it remains in balance. You can drink it now with a T-Bone steak or you can age it in the cellar for six to eight years.Tasted: 09 March 2023Tasted by: Prices:
