Terrazas de los Andes Malbec Reserva 2021

Mendoza, ArgentinaThe malbec is fermented and aged for 12 months in oak (60% new). The colour is opaque purple, with tarry, floral notes, intense blackcurrant on the palate, supported by youthful tannins through the finish. There is some freshness in the back end to balance it all but this red will need three to five years more bottle time to settle in. Barbecued ribs with a sweet sauce might be able to handle it at this point. The fruit is sourced from estate vineyards in Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley, with vines that span 20 to 90 years of age, planted at 100-1200 meters above sea level.Tasted: 09 March 2023Tasted by: Prices:
