Founded in 1892, Bodegas La Rosa has a long history of wine making in Argentina. Today the winery produces modern wines that have vibrant fruit expression and excellent balance. The Andean Vineyards wines and CXV come from high altitude vineyards in Mendoza where the vines benefit from warmth and excllent light during the daytime, and cool nights that maintain freshness and aromatic qualities. The Andean Vineyards Malbec sees no oak and has an attractive note of violet on the nose and lovely ripe fruit on the palate. Its big brother, the Reserve, is a selection of fruit that sees some time in oak. It is rich and mouthfilling with intense fruit flavours. Both wines have a freshness on the finish that gives them great drinkability. The CXV is a polished and sophisticated Cabernet/Syrah/Malbec blend, with perfumes of cedarwood. It is capable of ageing for a number of years. Finally the Aires Andinos wines offer superb value for money, proving that Chile is not the only country that can produce great value, well-made pouring wines.
