Tasting Notes

An impressive Malbec with deep purple hues, and concentrated fruit notes like blackberry and red currant. The nose shows purity of fruit and  complexity of aromas of a Malbec. It is a wine with an exquisite mouth and very sweet tannins and a long silky finish. This noble wine expresses the maturity of the vineyards in each of its characteristics. The wine matches perfectly with roasted red meats, ripe cheese or also stands beautifully on its own.

The Producer

Andean Vineyards

The Andean Vineyards, a prominent winery in Argentina, has a rich history that dates back to the early 20th century. The owner, Juan Muñoz López, founded the winery in 1901 in Mendoza, a province located in the western region of Argentina. The winery has since been passed down to his family and is currently operated by his grandson, José Muñoz.

The winemaker, Silvia Corti, has been with the Andean Vineyards since 2004. She holds a degree in enology from the National University of Cuyo and has worked in various wineries throughout Argentina. Corti is known for her commitment to sustainability and uses organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyard.

The Andean Vineyards are located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the climate is arid and the altitude ranges from 2,600 to 4,600 feet above sea level. This unique terroir, along with the use of traditional winemaking techniques, results in wines that are full-bodied and complex. The winery is particularly known for its Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Torrontés varietals.

Over the years, the Andean Vineyards has received numerous awards for its exceptional wines. In 2018, its 2015 Malbec Reserva was awarded a gold medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards. Additionally, its 2018 Torrontés received a gold medal at the Argentina Wine Awards in 2019.

Interestingly, the Andean Vineyards use concrete tanks to age their wines, a technique that was popular in the early 20th century but has since fallen out of favor. This technique results in wines with unique flavors and aromas, setting the Andean Vineyards apart from other wineries in the region.
