Cuvelier Los Andes Grand Vin Mendoza - Argentinian red wine

The Family Cuvelier owns Chateau Leoville Poyferre and has made a new Argentinian red wine called Los Andes Grand Vin Malbec which is a stunning wine. We can now supply it but we have a very limited quantity available of this wine.
Location : Mendoza - Valle de Uco, Vista Flores, Tunuyá.
Area : 65 hectares

Grapes varieties : 73% Malbec, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon,
8% Merlot

Average age of the vines : 7 years old

Harvest : Manual in 12 kg boxes.
Wine Making : After the hand selected grapes are filtered
twice, vats are filled by gravity and the maceration process begins.
This process consists of three stages: cold maceration (7
days at 8ºC); ferment maceration (7 to 10 days at 28ºC); and
post ferment maceration until reaching the 30 or 40 days that
is required to complete the total process.

Ageing : 100% in French oak barrels for 18 months.

Tasting note : A complex and expressive nose of blackberry, uplifted by a somewhat
mineral side. The wine is flattering and powerful on the palate. It offers round and velvety tannins. Its finish is persistent.
