Atemporal means “timeless”. Alta Vista’s French heritage inspired this site-specific blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Grown exclusively in the Alta Vista Estate Albaneve vineyard located in the Uco Valley, the blend is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months, and made for mid-term aging to allow the flavors to further develop and showcase the terroir of this unique, high-altitude vineyard.

Tasting Note

In nose, complex due to its three vines. Notes of violet, pepper, cinnamon and licorice. In mouth, it is a balanced combination: The silkiness of the Malbec, the structure and power of the Cabernet Sauvignon, and the intensity of the Petit Verdot that integrates this assemblage. A complex and persistent wine.
