Terrazas de los Andes Malbec Reserva 2021

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). Potent and dense violets, black currants, tar attack the full palate, with a swell of ripely sweet vanilla and candied florals sticking to the finish. Tannins are ample, tuggy, and ripe, and thankfully acidity is lofty as there is a lot to manoeuvre through here. This youthful wine will benefit from some air time and / or time in bottle before partnering with your sweet sauced ribs.Tasted: 11 April 2023Tasted by: Prices:
