Winemaker Notes

It is brilliant white gold colored with greenhighlights. Its white flower aromas, such as orangeblossom and rose combine harmoniously with itsintense fruity notes of pear, mango and passionfruit. On the palate, it is fruity and sensual, with excellent acidity expressed in an outstanding freshness. The aromatics and persistence are characteristic of this variety.

Critical Acclaim

WE 88
Wine Enthusiast

Oily and tropical on the nose, with pungency and clarity. The palate is full, layered, plump and loaded with lychee, honeydew and green herb flavors. Provides good feel and just enough acidity to make for a long ending.

Terrazas de los Andes, , South America
Terrazas de los Andes
Terrazas de los Andes is part of a long tradition of French-influenced Argentinian winemaking that began in the early 19th century, when a small group of French specialists travelled to South America, seeking to introduce French winemaking techniques and grape varieties.

A century later in 1959, Robert Jean de Vogue, president of Moët-Chandon, had the foresight to recognize the potential of Argentina and to select it as the location of the company's first subsidiary outside of France. Worthy heirs of these pioneers, the founders of Terrazas de los Andes saw the singularity of Argentina's terroirs, and had the vision and the audacity to unite France's long and rich winemaking heritage with local tradition and talent. Thus was born Terrazas de los Andes, in 1996.

Over the years, the team has been dedicated to carefully select the best altitude terroirs in Mendoza, both in Lujan de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, as well as Salta for our Torrontes, to deliver the ideal freshness and alluvial soil diversity for each type of grape.

Thriving in the unique natural conditions of the Andean Mountains, Malbec has come to embody Argentinian identity. Our Malbec wines, produced with hand harvested grapes from select high altitude vineyards, epitomize generosity and intensity, offering a large variety of expressions and high-quality tannins. They are particularly appreciated for their silkiness and ample mouthfeel.

Mendocino

View all wine

A large and diverse appellation within California’s North Coast AVA, Mendocino is home to several smaller sub-regions—most notably the Anderson Valley. This scenic region covered in redwood forests is one of the world’s top producers of certified organically-grown grapes. Due to wide geographical and climatic variation, a vast array of wine styles can be found here.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
