Winemaker's Notes:

The profound relationship between the sun and the altitude of the Andes inspired us to explore other paths. The result is this Cabernet Sauvignon, with which we wish to share the expression of a mythical variety, whose echoes of freshness and seduction make it stand out for its elegance.

About Achával-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. 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. Their Quimera blend is about Malbec as the key to complexity and balance. And their Fincas (Single Vineyards) are about how Malbec expresses different soils and microclimates.
