Flechas de los Andes Gran Corte 2012
|Region||Argentina, Uco Valley|
|Brand||Flechas de los Andes|
Bodega Flechas de los Andes was created thanks to a partnership between Baron Benjamin de Rothschild and Laurent Dassault, who sought to make wine on a great terroir at the foot of the Andes. The name "Flechas de los Andes" refers to the 5 arrows symbolising the Rothschild family. Planted in 1999, the vineyard benefits from a dry climate tempered by the tall Andes Mountains ( 1,100m). Malbec is the main grape variety on this unique terroir. The partnership between the two families, as well as their shared aim of producing an excellent Argentinian wine, led to the creation of Gran Corte.
