Sugar Creek Terminator Wine is a single varietal made from Malbec grapes harvested from the Maipo Valley Region of Chile. After fermentation, it was aged in French Oak for 12 months. Terminator Malbec is fruit forward with low acidity and light tannins. The shorter finish pairs well with leaner red meats, blue cheese and rustic flavors like mushrooms. Sugar Creek’s Malbec is named after the Terminator Rapid located in Inferno Canyon on the Futaleufú River (few-ta’-lay-few) in Patagonia, Chile. The name is an indigenous word meaning “Big River.” Locals refer to the valley as “un paisaje pintado por dios”—a landscape painted by God. It is one of the premier whitewater rivers in the world. The river is fed by glacial snow melt in the Andean lakes region of Chile.
