The 700 refers to the height in meters (approximately 3200 feet) at which the vines for Andres Plateau are grown in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Yields are low and the resultant grapes tend to be as rich and complex as any terroir-driven fruit in Chile. First impressions are red fruits, graphite and distinctive spicy overtones. Once on the palate, the wine appears extremely fresh with great intensity and deep, lasting flavor. The acidity aspect is even and directed allowing the wines to be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods. Lamb chops, numerous game dishes including duck will act perfectly with this handsome red.
