Terrazas de Los Andes Malbec Reserva 2012

Terrazas de Los Andes Malbec Reserva 2012

Sku: 131173

Full-bodied with a great structure, this wine stands out for its volume and silky mouth-feel. It is complex, boasting smooth, well-rounded tannins that give way to a staggeringly long and lingering finish.

Tasting notes
Color: intense red with blue shades.
Nose: powerful and complex. Notes of red fruit can be perceived such as raspberry, red currant and sweet plum. Further hints of vanilla and caramel, stemming from its aging in oak barrels, add a new level of complexity to this already full and exciting aroma.
Palate: a wine with a magnificent structure that offers a sensational mouth -feel and an intensely rich flavor. Its beautifully integrated tannins make it lively and strong. Its finish is smooth and perfectly harmonious.

James Suckling - 92 Pts: "This is seamless with extremely fine tannins and gorgeous subtle dark fruits with black licorice. Hints of nuts too. Drink or hold."

Wine maker notes
2012 vintage. Intense purplish colour with red shades. Very expressive, revealing a floral and red fruit profile of violet, raspberry and cherry, with marked aromas of toasted coffee and chocolate. Characterised by a broad and sweet mouthfeel, delicate tannins add finesse to this great Malbec.

Other text
The 2012 vintage is characterized by a very cold winter followed by extremely high temperatures from late spring to early summer; this lead to an accelerated increase of sugar rate and a decrease of grape weight. Then, temperatures dramatically decreased therefore slowing down the ripening cycle on the vine; as a result 2012 wines are very fruity and aromatic, with an acidity found typically when the end of the summer growing season is cooler.

Food pairing
Grilled meats such as chicken or turkey. Lamb cooked with wine sauce. Grilled vegetables and red oily fish.
