Product Description

The Flechas de los Andes Estate is located 120 miles south of Mendoza, Argentina. 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.

Gran Corte ("great blend") delivers a delicate balance by complementing Malbec's fruitiness with the opulence and spicy notes of Syrah and the freshness of Cabernet Franc. This spicy, full-bodied red pairs well with beef, venison or chocolate desserts.

60% Malbec

30% Syrah

10% Cabernet Franc
