Terrazas Malbec Altos del Plata 2012

Terrazas Malbec Altos del Plata 750ML 2012     
Sku: 601064

Full-bodied with a great structure, this wine stands out for its volume and silky mouth-feel. It is complex, boasting smooth, well-rounded tannins that give way to a staggeringly long and lingering finish.

Tasting notes
Colour: intense red with blue shades.
Nose: powerful and complex. Notes of red fruit can be perceived such as raspberry, red currant and sweet plum. Further hints of vanilla and caramel, stemming from its ageing in oak barrels, add a new level of complexity to this already full and exciting aroma.
Palate: a wine with a magnificent structure that offers a sensational mouth -feel and an intensely rich flavour. Its beautifully integrated tannins make it lively and strong. Its finish is smooth and perfectly harmonious.

Rating
 Vinous 90 points (Feb 2015)
Full red with ruby highlights. Blackberry, mocha and coffee on the nose, plus a hint of licorice pastille. Silky-smooth and sweet, even thick, but with enticing floral lift to the very ripe flavors of cherry, currant and mocha. Finishes with broad, sweet, building tannins and noteworthy richness. (I should note that an earlier sample of at least equal quality seemed much more tightly wound and primary, and showed a cooler character to its fruit. Its tannins were very suave, but this sample’s clarity and energy suggested that it will need a couple years of additional cellaring.)

Other text
The terraces of Vistalba are located 21 kilometres to the south of the city of Mendoza, to the north of the Mendoza River. Situated at an elevation of 1067 meters above sea level these terraces benefit from ideal climatic conditions, allowing us to obtain this Malbec of extraordinary structure and richness.
