Terrazas is a story of visionaries who made bold decisions before the potential of Argentina was known. In the 1950s Moët & Chandon created Bodega Chandon. In the 90s, its president had a vision for high quality still wine in Mendoza and, with a team led by Hervé Birnie-Scott, explored the terroir. They realized the region’s robust wines could be more refined and modern coming from a cooler terroir selected at higher altitude. Years of experimentation allowed them to understand the right altitude for each varietal expression. Born in 1996, Terrazas de los Andes evolved an elegant Argentinian-French style in Mendoza.
Altos del Plata by Terrazas de los Andes is the pure, young and fruity expression of a single varietal grown at its ideal altitude in Mendoza. For Altos del Plata, the Estate selects the cool-climate vineyards it believes most completely express the essence of the fruit and applies delicate and attentive winemaking techniques to retain the original aromas of Malbec – pure, fresh and spontaneous.
