Altamira is a mountain with extreme weather. Quiet and calm are mixed into the intensity of the peaks of Tunuyan. It is the most symmetrical of the vineyards: it possesses a ray of aromas ranging from black and red fruits to passing flowers to spices and minerals. It is rich, fresh and opulent, complex and fascinating. Like a wise elder, Altamira always has a new story to share.

” Deep ruby-garnet, this offers almost white wine aromatics, complementing attractive primary fruit, summer pudding berries and cherries. Wonderfully fresh and enticing, appetising and upbeat, the palate is light and airy – rather lovely in fact with precision and focus through to a crescendo on the finish – stunning. “
