Alta Vista Single Vineyard Temis


The unusual 2011 vintage saw good winter rains in Mendoza. After a very dry September, a gentle spring brought one of the best flowering periods in recent years. December and January were comparable to ’05, a notably cold vintage. February was the rainiest in decades, equaling Mendoza’s average rainfall for a year. After a mid-February start, most grapes were harvested from mid-April to early May and yields were a low 2.5 tons/acre. Red wines are very good to exceptional.

In a very deep violet color, this wine has a bouquet that reminds of fresh fruits with floral notes. Once in mouth, it is incredibly round, with extremely sweet tannins and a great harmony between wine and wood.


This wine is a great match with grilled beef steak, slow-roasted lamb or veal.
