Region: Mendoza, Argentina

Varietal: 100% Malbec

Tasting notes: The textbook definition of Malbec in a very good vintage. 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 noticeable minerality. Silky tannins mark a lengthy finish. Low yields, careful vineyard management and low intervention winemaking are the hallmark of this and all other Achaval-Ferrer wines.

Producer: 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. Low intervention winemaking allows the grapes to fully express their vineyard in the bottle. Each of their wines is a different expresson of Malbec: The Mendoza Malbec is about varietal tipicity.

Vineyard and Winemaking: Since its origins, the winery has followed a clear pathway traced by commitment to, and respect for nature. Achaval Ferrer bases its winemaking on fundamental pillars and a minimal intervention principle from the vine to the wine. Centennial, own-rooted vines are at the core of Archival Ferrer’s vineyards. These vineyards produce extremely low yields; they’re historical monuments to viticulture located on sun-drenched mountainsides irrigated by rivers Tunuyán and Mendoza. These are natural, privileged sites carefully treated to obtain the purest and most honest messages the soils can convey.
