Terrazas de Los Andes Altos del Plata Malbec Mendoza 2014

External Review by We Speak Wine:

2014 Harvest: 2014 was a season marked by warm temperatures during veraison which slowed the accumulation of sugar. The grape ripening process was resumed with cooler temperatures and some rainfall. As for the quality of the grapes, bunches had exceptional acidity and a very fresh aromatic profile. These conditions provided wines with good natural acidity, fresh aromatic profiles and plenty of juiciness, length and elegance. Tasting Notes: Color: Red with purple highlights. Aroma: Predominant aromas of black fruits as plum and berries in harmony with toasted hints and spicy notes of white pepper. Taste: Fruity and fresh profile. Presence of a slight toasted touch due to its barrel aging.
