The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this Terrazas de Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon are planted on terraces with an altitude of 980 meters above sea level. These terraces are also called Perdriel Terrace. Here we find the best terroir for the Cabernet Sauvignon. Surrounded by the Andes mountains, the grapes are in a safe environment to grow. The warm hours of sunshine in combination with the wind blowing through the Andes ensure a perfect climate. Due to the melt water that comes from the mountain tops that are permanently snow-covered, natural irrigation takes place. At the perfect ripeness at the end of March or the beginning of April, the grapes are harvested completely manually. After the maceration and fermentation of 21 days, this red Argentinian wine is allowed to mature for 12 months in French oak barrels, after which 1/3 is new oak. After bottling, the wine goes back into the cellars for 6 months for aging in the bottle.

The Terrazas de Los Andes Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense ruby-red color as befits a 100% CAbernet Sauvignon. The wine needs some time to loosen up and has a very nice freshness, which is due to the high-altitude vineyard and the very large difference in temperature, so day and night. In the nose we smell cherry, blackcurrant, figs, olives, spices and a hint of vanilla due to the oak aging. The taste is deep, full and wonderfully powerful. The rich nuances of black fruit are perfectly balanced with hints of spice and cocoa. The long finish is fruity and powerful with pleasant tannins.
