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 Andes foothills. The first vines were planted in 1999 and are quite dense for Argentina (5,500 vines per hectare). The Malbec grapes thrive on these ideal plots of rocks, granite pebbles and alluvial gavels perched at 1,100 meters above the sea level. They are joined by plots of Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The hot, dry climate is characterised as semiarid continental and features pronounced temperature fluctuations between day and night across seasons. These midaltitude conditions are highly conducive to the ripening of black grapes and, more particularly, of Malbec.
Made from the signature Malbec grape variety, the wine brings perfect flavors accompanied by a seductive red wine color. When enjoying wine, you will clearly feel the aroma of fruits such as plums, grapes, apples, a little spice and a hint of vanilla. All create a long-lasting flavor, the signature strong finish of the Malbec grape variety.
