Terrazas Selection Malbec
Terrazas Selection Malbec, Mendoza, 1067m
Please note this is the same as the Terrazas Reserva Malbec /em>, it is now being labelled as Selection. Terrazas Selection wines are hand harvested from select estate vineyards within the top districts of Mendoza: Tupungato, Vistalba, Perdriel and Cruz de Piedra. Based on over 47 years of research and experimentation with local microclimates and terrain, each selected terrace has been matched with a unique varietal to express its maximum potential. 100% Malbec. Only the free-run wine is moved to 80% French, 20% American oak barrels; 1/3 new, 1/3 one year old, 1/3 two years old. The wine spends close to twelve months in barrels before being lightly fined with egg whites and bottled.
Terrazas Selection Malbec is profound cerise in colour with florid, rubicund highlights. The nose has aromas of freshly crushed violet flowers, a deep core of jam preserves and ripened plums typical of Mendoza´s Vistalba region. The palate has racy notes of violet and graphite, which are followed by mouthfuls of dry cherries and fresh berry fruit. The luscious mid-palate, gives way to powdery tannins and a delicate herbal blend infused finish that adds to complexity.
“The 2009 Malbec Reserva received the same elevage as the Cabernet. Inviting aromas of balsam wood, lavender, underbrush, a hint of truffle, and black cherry lead to a ripe, plush, layered, Malbec with excellent balance and length. Drink this excellent value from 2012 to 2019.” 90 Points Jay Miller, Wine Advocate.
