Blend and Origin
Terrazas de los Andes Single Vineyard Las Compuertas Malbec 2014
Spring in Mendoza in 2014 was cool, but the summer hot, with a rainy period in April. This imparted high levels of acidity, freshness and aromatics in the wine, leading to a juiciness and elegance that signals excellent aging potential. The wine spent 14-16 months in French oak (90% new), and a further 18 months in the bottle, to develop wonderful depth and complexity.
Additional delivery charges may apply. This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Ideal with red meat or game

Spicy, slow-cooked or grilled red meats, such as roast beef tenderloin wrapped in Prosciutto or bacon, complement the intensity and juiciness in this malbec.
