The Altos Los Hormigas Clasico Malbec 2011 is grown at or above 800 metres on mostly low vigour soils in the Valle de Uco, Mendoza. The 2011 follows the excellent 2010, once again offering a fragrant mix of red and black fruit flavours flecked with smoky dried herbs notes. Textures are ultra-silky; the style Euro-classy. Serve for dinner. Great value. Price: $16. Score: 88/100.
