Terrazas de los Andes Malbec Reserva 2018

Mendoza, ArgentinaFrom estate vineyards in Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley, this big, savoury, mineral malbec is sourced from vines 20-90 years growing at 1070 to 1200m. The attack is less sweet than most entry level malbecs with toasted oak and spice throughout dense, savoury, dry black fruit. There is a coolness and a freshness that comes with a cooler vintage that makes it finish drier than most, with a twist of bitter dark chocolate, but I like its sophisticated cool demeanour. Think steak here grilled medium-rare, and root vegetables.Tasted: 26 February 2021Tasted by: Prices:
