Terrazas de los Andes Grand Malbec (2017)

2017, Mendoza Argentina
  • First class Malbec from one of Argentina's top producers (and part of the LVMH luxury brands group)
  • 96/100 (Bob Campbell MW) - "Dense, inky, powerful malbec with classic plum and spice flavours. A delicious wine that is surprisingly drinkable now but should respond well to bottle age. Harmonious and quite complex."
  • 95/100 (James Suckling) - "Incredibly perfumed with violets, dark berries and hints of cedar...superb balance and depth"
  • The best fruit from 3 vineyards, 14 different plots, aged 12 months in French oak and 12 months in cellar before release

There’s Malbec and then there’s Grand Malbec. Buckle up, this is one of the best examples of Argentinian Malbec from one of Argentina’s top producers. Terrazas de los Andes Grand Malbec is the result of a winery under the world’s leading luxury brand group (LVMH aka Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) sparing no expense and a meticulous attention to detail to craft a world class Malbec. There’s no corners cut here.

“Grand is the result of blending 14 selected plots coming from three of our most exceptional high-altitude vineyards, which complements each other, offering a diversity of elevations and soils that brings texture, breadth and complexity to the final creation. It seeks to offer to the Malbec lovers the fullest varietal expression of Mendoza.”

Terrazas de los Andes (named after the steep terraces at the foot of the Andes mountains) is one of Argentina’s top producers and the Grand is one of their top wines. Meticulously selected parcels of the very best fruit from three of their top vineyards and 14 different plots, hand picked fruit, aged 12 months in French oak and 12 months in cellar before release.

It’s had some seriously high praise from some of the world’s leading critics and publications…

96/1000 (Bob Campbell MW)
“A flagship blend of wines from three high-altitude vineyards. Dense, inky, powerful malbec with classic plum and spice flavours. A delicious wine that is surprisingly drinkable now but should respond well to bottle age. Harmonious and quite complex.”

95/100 (James Suckling)
“Incredibly perfumed with violets, dark berries and hints of cedar. Full body and integrated tannins that melt into the wine, delivering superb balance and depth.”

94/100 (Wine Enthusiast)
“A full palate is plush and stylish, while this high-elevation Malbec tastes of blackberry, cassis and savory herbs.”

94/100 (Antonio Galloni)
“Spectacular aromas of dark berries, espresso, mocha, violet, musky herbs, anise, soy sauce and raw burger…This Malbec should evolve at a snail’s pace.”

Malbec is what Argentina does best and this is one of the best you’ll come across. Treat yourself and drink now to 2030.
