96+ points, “Truly outstanding.” – Wine Advocate

Planted in 1925, Finca Altamira is located in an area famed for its extreme weather. As a result, you never quite know what you will get from it. The team at Achaval-Ferrer consider this wine – one of their flagship single-vineyard reds – as a wise elder that “always has a new story to share”. The 2014 is certainly proof of that…

Altamira is usually rich, opulent, creamy and floral. But 2014 had rainy patches, which gave the wine a fantastic freshness (read from that also longevity) and more elegance than usual. Expect blackberry, black plum, blackcurrant, black leather jackets warming in the sunshine, black coffee, blackened meat on the barbeque and black pepper, but it’s not all darkness, there’s also spices, wet wild herbs, moist tobacco and dew-laced violets. It’s a sensational way to warm up on a wet and inky dark night.
