Terrazas De Los Andes 2014 Malbec Reserva, Mendoza
Terrazas De Los Andes is an Argentine winery with an interesting history. Established in 1960 by the Champagne producer Moet and Chandon. This was the first property owned by Moet located outside of France. Clearly they were ahead of their time and continue to be. This sleek Malbec Reserva is perfect example. Sourced from the high altitude vineyards in Finca Las Compuertas and Finca El Pedregal all hand harvested, destemmed and macerated over 21 days. The 100% Malbec wine aged 14 months in 1/3 new French oak barrels. This wine scored 95 points from Decanter who said "Vibrant aromas of berries, flowers and herbs with a surprisingly fresh mineral note. Impeccable precision here with layers of dark fruit flavours complemented by well-integrated oaky taste. Chalky tannins and fresh acidity serve to frame the generous fruits. A pure Altamira Malbec with an endless finish."
