Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina
La Igriega Malbec Paraje Altamira is a single-vineyard Argentine red showing off the beauty and complexity of the Malbec grape. "The name LA IGRIEGA means "Y" in Spanish--equivalent to "and" in English--and symbolizes the genetic structure of this project. It means link, union, bond and addition. And that is what life is about, bringing all of us closer together. FINCA LA IGRIEGA is the sum of a superb terroir located in the highlands of the Andes; the care of an experienced vineyard manager; the skills of a top winemaker and the passion of the Goldberg family."-Finca La Igriega
La Igriega Malbec is made of grapes from a single vineyard, Paraje Altamira, which exhibits its attributes in this wine. Its sandy loam soils, with alluvial stones and calcareous deposits, the altitude, the rugged nature of its geography, and the temperate climate with cool nights are the essence of its juicy and expressive wines, characterized by deep flavors and sophisticated acidity.
