Achaval Ferrer Finca Bella Vista Malbec 2009 has an alluring bouquet of incense, violets, black cherry and blackberry. This wine is voluptuous and lengthy.
All Achaval Ferrer wines are bottled without fining or filtering. formation of deposits in the bottle will be noticeable after some cellaring time. This is no way affects quality. We strongly recommend decanting this wine at least an hour before drinking.
"The 2009 Finca Bella Vista was sourced from a vineyard planted in 1910 giving a miserly yield of 0.75 tons per acre. It displays slightly blacker fruit, a bit more depth and opulence, and a finish that seems endless. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and enjoy it from 2016 to 2029+."
The Wine Advocate
"Shows good cut to the dense boysenberry, blackberry and crushed raspberry notes, which are supported by silky tannins and vibrant acidity. Layers of hot stone, spice and violet slowly stretch out on the tightly wound finish. Malbec. Drink now through 2016."
