Additional Information

Cheval des Andes is a New World “Grand Cru” which combines the art of “assemblage” of Bordeaux's Premier “Grand Cru Classé A”: Cheval Blanc and the best Argentine “terroir” with the 1929 Malbec from Terrazas de los Andes.

The result of such magical encounter is a refined, subtle and complex “Grand Cru” of the Andes.

Color-Intense and deep ruby, with light purple accents.

Aromas- Opens with intense red & black fruits notes such as raspberry, redcurrant, and blackcurrant completed by subtle floral hints like geranium, rhubarb jam, andmenthol. Its noble oak aging gives it slight aromas of tobacco and pepper.

Palate- Well balanced, excellent structure in the mouth with silky and delicate tannins. This has a great intensity, complexity and elegance, all underlined by a vibrant freshness. Long and suave finish with deep aromatic persistence. Great aging potential.

 

The Vineyard of Cheval des Andes

Situated in the Andes more than a thousand meters above sea level, the vineyard is located in the Las Compuertas district, right at the heart of Vistalba, one of the most distinguished areas in Mendoza.

Sitting against this breathtaking backdrop, they occupy 50 hectares of naturally privileged land. Irrigation of the vineyard relies on pure meltwater from the Andes delivered by small furrows located at the foot of the vines.

The soil is sandy-loam with stone content at the depth and good drainage which encourage deep root growth and ensure greater balance, durability and the finest expression. Average temperatures in this great terroir couldn’t be more beneficial to the grapes, with warm daytime temperatures contrasted by fresh, crisp thermometer drops after-dark, thanks to breezes coming down from the hills at night.

Organic by nature, they practice the French art of assemblage in our winemaking as our five varieties - Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot – are matched, blended, and cajoled to play off each other’s true natures in the hands of our esteemed and impassioned winemakers. All these factors are essential to make Cheval des Andes the most expressive and refined ‘Grand Cru of the Andes’.
