A UNIQUE PROJECT
In Altar Uco, the terroir is dominated by our emotions. Our wines are the consequence of a peculiar and in-depth interpretation of nature and the strength of the fruits that are born in the Uco Valley.
Respect for each and every grape bunch grown in our vineyards is the key part of our identity and the character of our wines, which reflect the terroir where they are born and our interpretation of such place.
Quietness is the secret of all our wines.

ALTAR UCO EDAD MEDIA 2016 RED WINE
This is a blend composed of Malbec (50%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Merlot (20%), made from grapes from Gualtallary. Its 12-month ageing process in 500-liter French oak barrels provides it with structure, while its subsequent ageing in 3000-liter concrete amphoras gives calm, peacefulness and harmony. Finally, the blend sits one year in bottles.
This wine is full of life and history, the present and the past, and lets us catch a glimpse of the growth it will experience over the years thanks to its storing capacity.
ALTAR UCO EDAD MEDIA 2018 WHITE WINE
This is a blend made up of Chardonnay (90%) and Sauvignon Blanc (10%).
Aged in 500-liter French oak barrels, this is an elegant, inspiring and intellectual white. Even though today it is young, as time goes by, it will become more subtle and complex. It can be stored for over 10 years.
Edad Moderna Malbec
In its first aromatic expression, this red wine reveals itself as an earth wine, with elegant aromas reminiscent of herbs and wet mud, hints of thyme, red and black fruits, and notes of jam. Clear and clean-tasting, fresh and direct mouth attack; round, yet with nerve. Fine tannins, big mouthfeel, with an acidity that makes it a true gastronomic wine. A red wine that invites you to pour yourself another glass, yet with a simplicity that makes it complex.
Altar Uco has a very peculiar relationship with time: it is a “continuous” project that is always active, undergoing a process, renovating a dream on a daily basis.
Freedom and creativity are the two pillars in our search for the dreamed wine.
Freedom is what allows us to achieve true creativity to create unique and incomparable wines with their own identity.
