Product Overview

Product:

Terrazas de los Andes, Single Vineyard, Las Compuertas, Luján de Cuyo 2010

From vines planted over 1,000 metres above sea level, this is a sophisticated version of Malbec. Very old vines (some from 1929) give a depth of flavour rarely seen in red from Luján de Cuyo. The texture is soft and tender, the flavours ripe and decadently sweet.
