TN : Alto Las Hormigas Malbec 2007 Vineyard Slection Reserva, Mendoza, Argentina


In 1995, Alberto Antonini, a well known Tuscan wine maker, and Antonio Morescalchi, a young entrepreneur, bought 216 hectares Lujàn de Cuyo. Shortly after this, Attilio Pagli, another Tuscan wine maker, Alan Scerbanenko, an Italo-Swiss management counselor, and Antonio Terni, an Italo-Argentine winemaker in the Marche region of Italy, joined the enterprise.



The 100% Malbec grapes for this wine are hand picked in high density vineyards located in La Consulta and Vista Flores in the Uco Valley, and Vistalba, Perdriel and Las Compuertas in Luján de Cuyo. The yields were 7 tons per hectare or 14.5 hectolitres per acre.

Alcoholic fermentation is done by using native yeasts in wide stainless steel tanks.. The cap management is conducted with punch downs and rack and returns to maximize the extractions of colour and flavour from the skins. The time between crushing and pressing is approximately thirty days of which about ten are for primary fermentation and twenty for extended maceration. The temperature is kept at around 28 to 30 Celsius degrees to gain depth and volume in the mouth. After pressing the wine goes straight into tight grain French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. Ageing is for 16 months. The wine is then bottled unfined.

The winemakers were Alberto Antonini and Attilio Pagli. Total Acidity is 5.88 grammes per litre, the pH is 3.4, and the residual sugar is 2.81 grammes per litre.

I noticed you guys were talking about high heels and I wanted to share something with you that you might be interested in...

A little over 2 years ago, my husband and I got married in Los Angeles, California. Unfortunately, the day of our wedding was spoiled with rain. We had been having the wedding out on the grass and believe it or not, I was wearing high heeled shoes! They have been ruined by the end with the day :(

Even though this was one of the worst experiences I've ever had with my shoes, it actually led my sister in law to create a item which is just awesome! It's already been featured on TV shows like the Girls of the Playboy Mansion, as well as the show Kendra.

Heels Above will aid you protect your expensive heels from sinking in mud, slipping in cracks, and walking on sand and gravel. It is a new product, and I thought I'd share it with all of you.

They are taking orders now. You are able to order one pair, or a few dozen for your big wedding day.

I hope you guys like it... If you've any questions, feel free to drop them an email on their website:

Here's a photo of it in action:

To be a good benign being is to from a amiable of openness to the mankind, an cleverness to trust undeterminable things beyond your own pilot, that can govern you to be shattered in unequivocally extreme circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly outstanding relating to the get of the ethical life: that it is based on a trust in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a jewel, something kind of fragile, but whose acutely precise beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
