FLECHAS DE LOS ANDES

GRAN MALBEC

Flavourful, intense and fruity.

THE BIRTH OF A GREAT NEW WORLD VINTAGE

A PIONEERING CHALLENGE

Named Flechas de los Andes in homage to the five arrows(flechas) that symbolise the Rothschild family, the winery was created through the partnership of Baron Benjamin de Rothschild and Laurent Dassault in their quest for a great terroir at the foot of the Andes. The vineyard, which has been cultivated since 1999, enjoys a dry climate tempered by the high altitudes of the Andes (1100m): on this unique terroir, the Malbec grape variety reigns supreme. This partnership between the two families, as well as their common desire to produce an outstanding Argentine wine, gave birth to Gran Corte, a fine wine whose blend is mainly made of Malbec.

TASTING NOTE

The color is intense with violet tones, typical of this variety. The nose is expressive, dominated by fruity aromas of plums and cherries and violet floral aromas characteristic of Malbec from Uco. In the mouth the attack is round with fine, polished and dense tannins that give a magnificent center of mouth. The mineral character, the freshness, the subtle contribution of the oak and its long finish, make this wine an example of quality, elegance and excellence.
