Cheval des Andes [Pre-arrival] 2018
JS98-100: This is a plush, rich Cheval with blueberry and floral aromas and flavors. Hints of tar and fresh lavender. Full body. The depth and richness are impressive, as are the ripe yet fresh tannins. Very long and structured, yet controlled and in balance. This will be a great wine indeed. Release in September 2021.
An incredible partnership between Terrazas de los Andes, one of the pioneers in wine growing in Mendoza, and Bordeaux’s legendary Cheval Blanc. First produced in 1999 from an exceptional high-elevation terroir stretching over 46 hectares. At 1,070 meters above sea level, this is the highest vineyard on the right bank of the Mendoza river in the province of Luján de Cuyo. This is old vine Malbec blended with Cabernet Sauvignon resulting in a complex, expressive and soft wine. A true “grand cru” of the Andes.
