Terrazas de los Andes Malbec Reserva 2018

Mendoza, ArgentinaFrom estate vineyards in Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley, this big, savoury malbec is sourced from vines 20-90 years, and 1100-1200m. This was fermented and macerated for 3 weeks before aging for 1 year (40% in older wood). The wood plays a role here, with a sweet charred spice note that houses the dense, savoury black fruit. Notes of charcoal, roasted espresso, and violets dart in and out, with an element of freshness afforded by the altitude and dominance of stainless. Drinking well now, with grilled meats and root veg, as intended.Tasted: 26 February 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.99 select private retailers AB 22.00 select private retailers MB 19.00 Manitoba Liquor Mart NS 25.70 NSLC Producer: Terrazas de los AndesDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
