Located 120 kilometers south of Mendoza, Argentina, near the village of Vista Flores, the Flechas de los Andes vineyard now occupies more than 100 hectares in the Andean foothills. The first vines were planted in 1999 and they are quite dense for Argentina (5,500 vines per hectare).
The Malbec grapes seem to have found their ideal location on these plots of rocks, granite pebbles and alluvial gravels perched at 1,100 meters above sea level. They are joined by plots of Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The hot, dry climate is characterized as semi-arid continental and features pronounced temperature fluctuations between day and night and across seasons. These mid-altitude conditions are highly conducive to the ripening of red grapes and, more particularly, of Malbec grapes.
Aguaribay Malbec exhibits roasted notes, red fruits and spice. It is soft and smooth, easy to drink and will pair excellently with everything from BBQ to pizza night!
