Seed Wine 94 Points Rating

The 2015 Malbec is a wine that is delicate and strong at the same time. It’s very much like Pinot Noir—it’s a red wine in a white dress.

Seed Wines has received an outstanding 94 points from Wine Enthusiast for their single-vineyard 2015 Paraje Altamira Malbec. The review comes on the heels of the boutique producer having been awarded a gold medal from The Drinks Business’ prestigious 2016 Global Masters wine competition in London.

The review, penned by the magazine's Spanish and South American editor, Micheal Schachner, appeared in the May Buyer's Guide:

“Ripe black-fruit aromas are loaded with fine oak and notes of licorice and sandalwood. A solid mile-deep palate is intense, layered and balanced. Creamy oak, aged cheese, black fruits and an exotic accent create an impressive combination of flavors, while this is muscular, warming and tastes dark and minty in the finish. Only 200 cases produced. Drink through 2022.”

Hand harvested from 42-year old vines grown in well-drained alluvial clay and limestone soils, Seed's vineyard is situated at the extreme southern end of the Uco Valley in the prestigious Altamira district. The vines are own-rooted and are irrigated using an ancient system of canals fed by meltwater from Andean glaciers.

Following harvest, the 2015 Malbec was aged for 16 months in new French oak in Mendoza's oldest wine cave. Seed's Italian-born winemaker, Giuseppe Franceschini, had this to say about the vintage: "I like the elegance of the Malbec. Growing conditions in 2015 gave us wines that are vertical and fresh. The 2015 Malbec is a wine that is delicate and strong at the same time. It’s very much like Pinot Noir—it’s a red wine in a white dress."

The company's founders Tony Hartl and Alex Chang have a strong commitment to philanthropy on a local level and further abroad. They've committed to giving a new schoolbook to a child in Mendoza for each bottle of Seed wine they sell. You can learn more about Seed Wine by visiting their website at http://www.seedwine.com.
