    Cheval des Andes 2012

    The 2012 is a blend of 66% malbec, 26% cabernet sauvignon and 8% petit verdot, with some grapes growing in exceptional plots of old vines in Las Compuertas. The fermentation of the grapes happened naturally, allowing for gentle extraction. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels, 30% of which were new, enhancing its complexity and structure.

Requires strength – pair with red meats and spicy dishes

Starter

Begin with an assortment of charcuterie that includes a dry-cured salami or smoky chorizo.

Main

Seared steak served rare with salsa verde, or pork ribs and salsa criolla, will stand up to the robust flavours of this vintage.

Dessert

This wine works best with savoury foods – for dessert, pair with an aged goat cheese.
