Terrazas de los Andes

Jo Ahearne MW

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Huge but fine tannins and equally huge concentration of fruit. But will the tannins ever meld together? Black olives, bitter chocolate and damson jam with a twist of thyme. Powerful and intense.

Phil Crozier

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Very complex on the nose. Deep and dark, with very firm but ripe tannins. Needs a little more time, but will get better and better.

Patricio Tapia

Tasting: Argentinian Terroir Malbec

Very good structure to support the ripe flavours in this Malbec. The bones are strong and tight. An excellent example of (Las Compuertas), one of the highest spots in Luján de Cuyo.
