Mendoza, Argentina

100% Malbec.

Old and New World meet in this bottle.
All the complexity of Europe with all the finesse of California!

What we love most about Achaval-Ferrer is their belief that it is appropriate to have the smallest amount of intervention necessary between the earth, the vine
and the winery is needed to make a great glass of wine!

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

This is the textbook definition of Malbec in a great vintage year.
Bright violet in color, this wine is fresh and floral, featuring blackberry, plums and violets on the nose and palate.
The wine is soft and round with a hint of perfectly timed minerality.
Silky tannins mark a lengthy finish.
Low yields, careful vineyard management and low intervention winemaking are the hallmark of this producer.



A bit about Achaval-Ferrer ….

Founded in 1998, Achaval-Ferrer is a team of friends who dream about great wines. Achaval-Ferrer is also a collection of old vineyards in beautiful places. They are committed to the production of wines that are expressive of their terroir. They are a small winery because this is the key to top quality. Low yields allow the vineyards to express their personality in the grapes
