About the Wine

Altamira is a wine region at the southern tail of the Uco Valley in Mendoza, Argentina. The small sub-region has long been important to some of Mendoza’s most prestigious producers (Catena Zapata and Achaval Ferrer among them). Altamira’s main grape variety is Malbec, which makes vibrant, intense wines with dark fruit and floral characters.

The sub-region is one of several that lie on the banks of the Tunuyan river in the Uco Valley. Altamira is one of the southernmost, with La Consulta a little way to the northwest. The winegrowing village of San Carlos is a stone’s throw south. To the west, the imposing Andes mountains provide a buffer between this desert region and the verdant valleys of Chile.

Powerful modern reds with the ability to age.

A typically New World style of wine characterized by ripe fruit, firm tannins and massive popularity.
