Terrazas de los Andes (named after the steep terraces at the foot of the Andes mountains) is one of Argentina’s top producers. You’ve got to be pretty flash to get nestled under the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy umbrella of wine producers.

Since 1999 they’ve been part of this exclusive, fancy pants list of wineries that includes world class producers like Cape Mentelle, Chandon and our very own Cloudy Bay. And while Sauvignon Blanc was the grape that put NZ on the world wine map (thanks to Cloudy Bay), the Argies have taken Malbec under their wing as their wine growing speciality.

Scoring 94 points with one of the world’s leading critics James Suckling who was clearly pretty impressed with this latest 2021 vintage. “Such a beautiful, fresh nose with tons of wild herbs, thyme, rosemary, sour cherries and flowers. Very linear and bright on the palate, charged with silky, fine-grained tannins and fine austerity. You can literally smell the herbs and the wild flowers from the vineyard. Pristine but intense and so fresh and precise. Pure fruit! Insane value for a $20 (USD) bottle.”

This is exactly why we love Malbec – medium bodied, plush and packed with ripe cherry fruit flavours. And like most Malbecs it’s a wine that stands up to any meat dish you can throw at it – beef, game, lamb, sausages, the lot! But if you want to really win over the guests at your next dinner party try pairing it with a white chocolate and red berry flan with dark chocolate parfait!
