Terrazas de Los Andes Malbec 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This exquisite Malbec has been elaborated with grapes from our 70 year old vineyard "Los Compuertas", located at 3,500 feet above sea level. Produced in very limited quantities and only in exceptional years, this wine is the best expression of our vineyard and passion of our wine makers.

In the late 1950s, Moët & Chandon, a subsidiary of LVMH, sent Renaud Poirier, its Oenology Director, to Latin America to research the region’s potential for world-class wine production.

Er zeichnet sich durch seine tiefrote Farbe mit Purpurreflexen sowie sein intensives und komplexes Aroma mit Noten von schwarzen Früchten, Pflaumen, Rosinen, Vanille, Karamel und feinen Holztönen aus. Sein Geschmack ist außergewöhnlich gut strukturiert und körperreich. Die weichen Tannine geben ihm Volumen und einen langen Abgang.
