Winemaker Notes

All Achaval-Ferrer's wines are bottled without fining or filtering. There is additional risk in this, but they prefer not to strip 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.

WW 97
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
One of greatest wines in the world, the ultra-fine 2011 Achával-Ferrer Malbec takes full control of the palate and sends in on a magic carpet ride to a special place that true wine lovers have been longing for, this wine is that spectacular! Deep ruby, almost blackish in color, superfine and ultra-rich aromas of black fruit, aromatic flowers and sweet earth, almost has a toastiness to it; medium bodied, rich, layered and almost thick on the palate, sweet tannins surround and cherish the Malbec fruit; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; black fruit flavors are terrific and inviting, lots of class here, a hint of coffee bean, earth and flowers; long finish, enticing and youthful in the aftertaste. Kind of drinking now, will get even better with time. (Tasted: August 3, 2015, San Francisco, CA)
WS 96
Wine Spectator
Dark and racy, featuring blackberry coulis, black plum skin and cassis notes balanced with fresh acidity and fine tannins. Embedded layers of espresso, flint and floral mark the long, expressive finish. Best from 2014 through 2022.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Malbec Finca Altamira is a subzone from La Consulta in the Uco Valley, which is located at 1,050 meters above sea level on the east bank of the Tunuyan River. The soils have big boulders and volcanic ashes, and there is an important component of calcium carbonate. This is the first old vineyard they found, and it produces a very dark-colored, bright, wine with a subtle nose, mixing flowers (violets) and red, blue and black fruit, with hints of spices and a velvety feeling. The palate is medium-bodied, silky, with an impressive acid spine and completely ripe and round tannins. The velvety feeling is also confirmed in the texture, which displays a long tactile sensation mixing electricity, minerality and very good acidity. A superb wine! Drink 2014-2025.

Achával-Ferrer  Altamira Vineyard Winery Image
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.
