Winemaker Notes

Rich with luscious raspberry and macerated currant, Mendoza Malbec has a dark, juicy finish. This wine is vivid and racy in character.

Wine Spectator
Fresh and floral, featuring crushed raspberry and racy cherry notes on a minerally frame, with silky tannins marking the lengthy finish.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Malbec (first vintage was 2003) is a blend of three vineyards from Medrano, one from Lujan, one from Gualtallary (the highest altitude) and one from La Consulta in the Uco Valley. There is a short fermentation (7 days) but it resulted in a very dark-colored, ripe wine with aromas of blackberries, a touch of red fruit, and hints of smoke and spices. It is quite intense. The old vines are always different in the nose and the palate and this feels like an old-vine Malbec, medium-bodied palate, supple, mineral, rounder, velvety, grapy and silkier. Tannin and alcohol are well-integrated and in the background. Drink now-2018.

James Suckling
A cool, fresh red with dried berries and delicate tannins. Lots of violets. Minerals, too. Full body with delicate tannins and a clean finish. Pretty.

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.
