"After some ups and downs in past vintages, the 2017 Malbec Appellation Gualtallary is every bit as good as the already superb 2017. It's expressive, mineral and vertical, austere, like biting into chalk. It's produced with grapes from a rented plot in a somewhat fashionable appellation that is quite large and diverse. The palate is super austere, dry, serious and mineral, while the nose is expressive and has the wilderness of the place with unusual elegance and freshness for a year like 2017. It finishes long and tasty, with some violets. Could this be their best Gualtallary to date? Drink: 2019-2030. 96+ points

I visited the impressive new vineyard from Altos Las Hormigas in Altamira with winemaker Leo Erazo, where they have planted by soil and kept the local vegetation rather than planting rectangular plots. That will make it easier to work by soil when the vines come into production."
