Tim Atkin 94 "The blend of this wine used to change every year, but has now settled on Malbec with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, combining elements from Paraje Altamira, Gualtallary and Chacayes. Fresh, elegant and beautifully balanced, it’s another triumph from Chakana."  Vinous

Altos 'Altamira' Malbec 2015
96  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkins 96 Master of Wine "“The Altos team only made one Appellation wine in 2015, alas, but it’s still a very impressive release, sourced from a single grower in Paraje Altamira. Subtle oak, aromas of orange zest and avatar of roses, crunchy blackberry fruit, fine tannins and wonderful

Tim Atkins 94 "Texture is very important for us,” says Chris Mullineux of this brilliant blend of mostly Chenin Blanc with Clairette, Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Semillon. Rich, dense and mouth filling, it’s savoury, honeyed and subtle with fine-grained oak and balancing acidity.

Altos 'Hormigas Reserva' Malbec 2014
93  Tim Atkin 
Wine Advocate 93 "There is quite a jump in price for the 2014 Malbec Reserve. Here the grapes are grown on chalky soils with round stones in Altamira, Gualtallary and a touch of Vista Flores (that they are not using anymore) that fermented with indigenous yeasts and without any acid correction. The

Altos 'Guatallary' Malbec 2013
96  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkins 96 Master of Wine  “The most aromatic and the most refined of Altos’ sub-regional Malbecs, this is sourced from comparatively young vineyards. Scented, subtle and very chalky, it’s a classic example of a new style of Argentinean Malbec. Textured and very pure, this is classy winemaking

Altos 'Altamira' Malbec 2013
95  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 95 "Seeing the differences between the Appellation Malbecs in 2013 is splitting hairs. The 2013 Malbec Appellation Altamira is sourced from the alluvial terraces of the Tunuyán River in Altamira where the soils are very rich in calcium carbonate, the ideal for Altos las Hormigas in

Chakana Winery 'Estate Selection' Malbec 2016
92  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkin 92 "I’ve never seen such elegance,” says Gabriel Bloise, speaking of the 2016 vintage. This is a zesty, refreshing, adroitly oaked blend of grapes from mostly Paraje Altamira with 30% Gualtallary. Floral and subtle, it has rose petal scents and succulent wild strawberry fruit underscored

Altos 'Vista Flores' Malbec 2013
93  Tim Atkin 
Wine Advocate 93 "he spicier of the appellation Malbecs might be the 2013 Malbec Appellation Vista Flores, also a little riper with juicy cherries and hints of cassis intermixed with the flowery aromas and the elegant minerality found in all of the range. The palate is silky and juicy, very

Tim Atkin 94“Combining 15% fruit from Gualtallary for the first time, this Paraje Altamira-based Malbec is getting better with every vintage. Stylish oak, floral aromas (with a dash of grassy Cabernet Franc) and tangy red berry fruit underpinned by fine tannins."

Zuccardi Malbec 2014
90  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkin 90"Great fruit; more black than red, with spicy aromas. Very fresh but round as well. The 2013 vintage provided elegant fruit, with great natural acidity. Great example of a Malbec from the Uco Valley." ~T.A.

Dom Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin Clos des Issarts 1er Cru 2012
96  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkin 96 "A monopole situated close to Mazis-Chambertin and Les Ruchottes, this 0.5-hectare vineyard is planted north-south (rare in these parts). Its fine, fresh and sweet, but with an undertow of tannin and considerable depth of flavour. With neighbors like those, its hardly surprising. Fresh
