Cheval des Andes 2015 75cl 15% ABV
Cheval des Andes Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza, Argentina
This Red Wine vintage was first characterised by strong winds during winter and some frost in September that caused a very uneven bud break. Spring was followed by three very strong "Zonda" winds that lowered the fruit set.
The naturally low yield helped develop colour and aroma concentration in the skins. The months of December, January and February showed higher temperatures than the average. The season from veraison to harvest reached was very fresh.
Fabulous aromas of blackberry, spice and flower. Perfumed. Lavender, rose and lilac too.
A Wine that grows on the palate with extreme finesse and complexity that shows ultra-fine tannins, currants, and flowers. Super length. Mostly mablec with cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot.
Best Cheval des Andes ever? Drink or hold.
