Terrazas Reserva Malbec – 75CL

5,665

From the high-altitude vineyards of Las Compuertas and Paraje Altamira comes to this aromatic, well-structured Malbec, produced from concentrated grapes that benefited from excellent weather in a year of low yields. Surrounded by the high peaks of the Andes, Terrazas’s vineyard is located in the heart of Mendoza’s Lujan de Cuyo and Uco Valley. With the extremely high altitude, low rainfall, and rocky soil, wines made in the region are pushed hard for hydration and nutrients. The results of successful wine in this region develop intensely vivid flavours. The climate also assists in reducing acidity, which assists the winemakers in producing the purest expression of each wine.

Terrazas’s winery was built in 1898 by Sotero Arizu, one of the pioneers in the creation of the wine production market in Argentina. The oldest vineyard Las Compuertas was planted in 1929, designed to produce the ultimate expression of Malbec. Today, Argentina dominates the world in Malbec production and has helped popularise the grape around the world.

Terrazas de Los Andes grows its grapes at the ideal altitude for each variety, allowing them to develop the maximum expression of aromas and flavours. The grapes of Terrazas Malbec is sourced from specially selected terraces in the top quality districts of the Mendoza region of Argentina at 1,067 metres above sea level.

Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months before bottling, Terrazas Malbec has picked up smooth, toasty, tobacco-like notes from the oak, and has a great capacity for aging.  Enjoy with most beef dishes and don’t skimp on the spice! This new style of Terrazas Reserva Malbec is the end product of many years of winemaker Niolas’ meticulous wine efforts.

Tasting Notes: Terrazas Reserva Malbec

Eye/Colour/Appearance: Beautiful ripe red with shades of purple.

Nose/Aroma/Smell: Extremely fruity. Black cherries, prunes, and raisins are combined with vanilla, caramel, and toasted notes to define a very complex nose. Hints of violets stand out, typical of Malbec.

Flavour/Taste/Palate: Great body, structure, and volume; a powerful wine. Despite its concentration, it’s round and ripe tannins provide a soft and young character, that anticipate great ageing potential.

Finish: Sweet and juicy mouthfeel with finesse and delicate tannins. Finished with a fantastic black fruit flavour.
