Alta Vista Single Vineyard 'Serenade' Malbec

In 2001, Alta Vista was the first Argentine winery to produce single vineyard wines. Alta Vista uses fruit from distinctive sites to craft unique wines that show the true characteristics of each vineyard. Similar to Single Vineyard Alizarine and Temis, Serenade is aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in bottle. Located above 3,000 feet elevation in Luján de Cuyo, this distinctive vineyard is characterised by drastic diurnal temperature differences. Wine from the Serenade vineyard is distinguished by its expressive red fruit notes, tannic structure, good persistence in the mouth, and great refinement.

"Pure blackberry, cassis and charcoal aromas come with a sweet oak-based scent of maple. This is a beast of a wine with lushness and padding to the palate along with huge tannins and fine oak framework. Toasty, chocolaty oak flavors caress a black-fruit explosion prior to a saturated finish that spreads out like a slow-moving lava flow. Drink through 2022." (2012 vintage) 94 points, Wine Enthusiast
