Alta Yari Malbec Reserva 2021


The legendary winemaker is now firmly in his 70’s (pushing 80?!?) but shows absolutely no signs of slowing down as he continues to rack up ‘Winemaker of the Year’ and ‘Lifetime Achievement’ awards all still within the past few years.

I was blown away when our winemaking friend told me he had a new project – like really blown away. When does this guy rest? What does he even have left to prove?!?

But of course when winemaking is in your blood and you still feel good, you continue to push the boundaries and try to make truly special wines. That’s what Herve Fabre is doing with his new winery, Alta Yari.

Alta Yari was born out of the desire to make the very best Crus from vineyards in his hometown. The goal is to make Alti Yari the greatest wine estate in Argentina and amazingly (though not surprising) he has them on pace.

They’ve made wines at Alta Yari for all of two years and already they’ve been treated to a litany of 91-95 point scores with some of the most beautiful Argentine Red expressions that I’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting. Fabre called the Alta Yari estate ‘one of the best he’s found in his 40 years of winemaking in Argentina’. That is not something that I or you should take lightly. That’s not usually the way Herve talks.

91 Points, James Suckling
Aromas of mulberries, violets, blackberries, blackcurrants and tobacco leaves. Fresh, fruity and bright with a medium to full body and creamy tannins. Focused and well-balanced. Drink or hold.

91 Points, Descorchados
This wine manages to display ripe fruit without fatiguing or numbing the tongue. On the other hand—and thanks to a good network of tannins and acidity that provides tension and alleviates the sweetness of the fruit—it’s nervy and agile with enough body and flavors of red fruits and herbs to accompany charcuterie.
