Winemaker's Notes

All our wines are bottled without fining or filtering. There is additional risk in this, but we prefer not to stripe the wine of subtle flavors and aromas. The 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.

Critical Acclaim

"The glories of Achaval-Ferrer are the limited production single-vineyard Malbecs. Compared to the 2004, the 2005 Finca Mirador Malbec is more dense and austere. It is likely to have a longer drinking window and it will be a pleasant task to compare the two vintages in another decade."
94 Points

"Offers a wide range of vivid purple and black fruit flavors with a piercing intensity, as notes of violet and iron race alongside the exotic plum cake, blueberry and black currant. Packed, but the structure is dominant for now, with loam and iron notes clamping down on the finish. Best from 2008 through 2012."
