Single Vineyard Alizarine was introduced in 2001, making Alta Vista the first Argentine winery to produce single vineyard wines. Utilizing their tailored Terroir Management system for wine growing and winemaking, Alta Vista uses grapes grown in distinctive sites to craft these unique wines that show the true characteristics of each vineyard. All Single Vineyard wines are aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in bottle.

 Wine Advocate 94 points (Oct 2012)
The outstanding 2010 Alta Vista Single Vineyard Alizarine is planted on granitic sand that was planted in 1927. The minerality really comes through on the nose, with scents of crushed stone that are not evident on the other two single vineyard wines. The palate is taut and exudes greater tension than the Temis and Serenade. It has a pixelated quality to it and the vibrant, spicy finish laced with white pepper is delightful, the aftertaste earthy. If you seek a cerebral Argentinean Malbec, this is where to come. Drink 2014-2028. N.B. The new vintage of Alto (2010) had been bottled two months earlier and was still recovering, so it will be reviewed next year.

This brawny red displays an elegant side to its compact core of jammy blackberry, black cherry and plum reduction notes, as mocha, baking spice and wild herb hints accent the chalky finish. Drink now through 2018.óN.W.
