Get ready to be seduced by this wine. We know Malbec isnít necessarily the sexiest of grapes. Stacked up against delicate Pinot Noir or perfumed Grenache, it seems a little pedestrian--but we assure you, this wine will captivate you.

La Puerta Alta Malbec is hand harvested to preserve the integrity of the grapes.

Waves of exotic spices, plump blackberry, and a touch of mint lead to a long, creamy finish on this latest addition to our Malbec stable.

Located alongside olive groves in a 375 acre area owned and operated by Valle de La Puerta, the vineyards are located in the Famatina Valley. The Famatina Valley Region is situated in the north west of the Province of La Rioja, in Argentina. Itīs an 80km long desert valley with mountain ranges on each side: the Velasco and the Famatina. Itís a sparsely populated environment with a unique micro-climate. It gets great exposure to sunshine with warm days and very cool nights. An abundance of water deep below the surface ensures that water is available when needed.

This wine is absolutely killer with Moroccan spiced lamb chops over cous cous with a salad of mixed greens with a fig and yogurt dressing.

"Case discount price" reflects a 10% case discount (5% on Sparkling Wines) for any mixed-case purchase of 12 bottles or more shipped to a single address. "Special prices" (e.g. on gift sets) are final prices for any order, and these bottles also count toward a 12-bottle minimum to qualify for a case discount. FOR ALL OTHER ORDERS OF FEWER THAN 12 BOTTLES IN TOTAL, REGULAR PRICES WILL BE APPLIED WHEN WE PROCESS YOUR FINAL INVOICE.
