Winemaker Notes

Bright, medium ruby. Vibrant, strong aromas of blackberry,violet, dark raspberry and crushed stone. Very well built finetannins, with superconcentrated body. Utterly silky finish with aperfumed back end.

Wilfred Wong of
94 POINTS, WILFRED WONG. (Tasted: May 9, 2016, San Francisco, CA USA) The 2012 Achaval-Ferrer Bella Vista Malbec shows tremendous elegance without sacrificing power and strength. The wine exhibits red and blue fruits, with a light touch of sweet oak. Its comforting palate presence makes it an excellent companion with roast pork. Drinking quite well now. (Tasted: May 9, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
Dusty cherry, wild berry and minerally aromas comprise a compact, deep nose that’s entirely inviting. Juicy, bold and bright on the palate, with sturdy tannins, this offers exotic notes of cumin and baking spices along with wild berry flavors. It’s elegant, complete and thorough on the finish; drink through 2020.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
2012 was a warmer, riper vintage than 2013 in Mendoza, but it shows little in the 2012 Malbec Finca Bella Vista. Perhaps the only hint could be that the fruit from riper vintages takes the oak in a different way and curiously enough the 2012 shows more oak influence than the 2013. There is a great combination of floral and fresh characters and the Mediterranean profile with some aromas of dried herbs. The palate reveals a serious wine with grainy tannins that add an elegant rusticity. Again, the only problem here is having the 2013 next to this great 2012.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Unctuous, intensely fruity and pure, with red currant, dried raspberry, boysenberry and spiced cherry flavors, supported by lip-smacking acidity. The lively finish echoes with brambly notes.
JS 92
James Suckling
Shows plenty of sliced lemon and citrus rind character. Hints of minerals too. Full to medium body. Bright finish.

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.
