The 2016 Aluvional Paraje Altamira has a subtle and elegant nose, nuanced and with very fine, chalky tannins, with grip and texture. It comes from the limestone-rich soils in their vineyards. It fermented in concrete with wild yeasts, with a higher proportion of full clusters than in warmer vintages (something they learned in 2016; before that, they thought they needed darker stems from higher ripeness) and 30% of the wine matured in barrique. It has structure and is very textured - the characteristic of this part of Altamira - and it has a savory, almost salty sensation in the finish. Drink date: 2020-2032. Score - 96.
