Blend and Origin
Cheval des Andes 2013
Cheval des Andes’ 2013 vintage is characterized by an overall warm and generous climate. The beautiful blend of 67% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot is the result of a meticulous work in vineyards and a very precisely timed harvest. In the cellar, the new style of Cheval des Andes is marked by a slightly higher proportion of new oak and the use of large 500-liter barrels similar to Chateau Cheval-Blanc.
