From the winery:
"It can be said that Mendoza is at the heart of Paraje Altamira, one of Argentina’s top wine-growing regions. And the intense red wines that spring from the Uco Valley (Valle de Uco) are the earth’s blood. In fact, in Mendoza’s native Huarpe language, Zaha means “Heart” and TeHo means “Blood of the Earth.”
"It is here that winemakers Alejandro “Colo” Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach produce vibrant, intense wines with dark fruit and floral characters. In 2017, Decanter Magazine named Sejanovich one of the top five winemakers in South America.
“We strive to produce limited production wines which reflect the character of our two small single-vineyard estate properies,” says Jeff Mausbach. “The wines of Teho and Zaha represent a search for complexity and balance.”
"Closer to Santiago, Chile, than to Buenos Aires, Paraje Altamira is situated at 4,000 feet with a microclimate of hot, sunny days and cool nights perfect for producing world-class Malbecs. Additionally, Teho and Zaha produces Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon wines of distinction."
"Argentine First Growth.
"Paraje Altamira, with its high altitude (4,000 feet) and cool microclimate, has become synonymous with world-class Malbecs. The soils of Paraje Altamira are very diverse, with patches of sandy, rocky and silty soils dispersed throughout the vineyard. At the moment of harvest, each soil profile imparts distinct aromatic and flavor profiles to the Malbec fruit – floral notes in the sandy patches, stony minerality in the rocky areas, and dark fruits in the silty soils. The combination of these profiles lends excellent complexity to the final wine. From co-winemakers and co-owners Alejandro “Colo” Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach." -Tim Atkin, MW
"95 points. “Floral aromas of orange peel, rose petal and violet blend with more typical scents of tar and char. This Malbec blend is linear in feel but full, without an ounce of flab. Lightly spiced berry, red plum and chocolaty oak flavors finish toasty and tight, but with give.” - James Suckling
