Winemaker Notes

Achaval Ferrer Finca Bella Vista Malbec 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.

James Suckling
Extraordinary aromas of blackberry and licorice with violets. Full body, with incredible depth of fruit and tension. Phenomenal mouthfeel. So much mineral and dried flowers too. Drink or hold.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Vibrant, with a juicy spark behind the crushed blackberry, blueberry and dark raspberry notes. Well-built, with fine tannins and accents of wildflower, graphite and cured tobacco lingering on the fruit-filled finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Malbec Finca Bella Vista is from Perdriel (where they have the winery) at 985 meters above sea level, on the south bank of the Mendoza River. The soils are deep, with abundant gravel. This seems much more subtle and elegant than the Mirador, with finesse and ample fine tannins, the medium-bodied palate is precise, a little incisive, with good acidity. This is concentrated and smooth, powerful and elegant. Drink 2014-2024.

Hey guys, I would take this wine in heart beat over some of the world's most expensive Bordeaux style wines, the 2011 Achával-Ferrer Malbec Finca Bella Vista is simple drop-dead gorgeous! I enjoyed this wine with famed Chef Chris Cosentino's Pork Shoulder with Shaved Squash, Blossoms, Thyme and Red Wine Jus, and my senses haven't stop talking to me. Incredibly elegant and stylish, yet powerful and determined, this one takes Malbec past the limits of superiority and puts the varietal into a place of international command. Deep ruby blackish color; aromatic red and black fruit flavors, a potpourri of berries and flowers, with a hint of minerality; medium bodied, bitingly fresh on the palate, sweet and terse in the tannin department; dry, excellent acidity, well balanced; a bouquet of red and black berries on the palate, some mineral notes; long finish, crisp aftertaste. Like a flower, this one is just beginning to unveil itself. (Tasted: August 3, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

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.
