Atemporal means “timeless”. Alta Vista's French heritage inspired this site-specific blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Grown exclusively in the Alta Vista Estate Albaneve vineyard located in the Uco Valley, the three varietals are harvested, fermented and aged separately in French oak barrels for 12 months.

Complex on the nose due to its three vines. Notes of violet, plums, blueberry and fig with hints of thyme and licorice. Balanced combination on the mouth - the silkiness of Malbec, the structure and power of Cabernet Sauvignon and the intensity of Petit Verdot.

The red blend 2017 Atemporal was 53% Malbec, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Petit Verdot, a blend that changes with the vintage, but it's always produced with fruit from their vineyard in Vista Flores. It fermented in concrete vats and matured in 50/50 second and third use oak barrels for 12 months. They love to blend at Alta Vista (it's their Champagne roots!), and I must say this Bordeaux blend rocks. I'm not a fan of Petit Verdot on its own, but I think it's a grape that contributes a lot to blends. It's spicy, herbal and peppery, with ripeness but without excess. They have started using some larger barrels, not just 225-liter ones, so the oaking is subtler and the aromas and flavors are very integrated and in the background. 34,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2019.
