2014 Achaval Ferrer Malbec

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense, pure, full colours and young aromas. This wine completes our vision of Malbec. We wish to honour the insignia variety of Mendoza. We want to emphasize all the characteristics of this unique cepage. Our work in the vineyards reinforces leaf system over root system, and emphasizes the soul of the fruit. Our objective is to preserve the vertebral column of variety. The wine was aged during 9 months in French Oak barrels. We took special care to preserve the necessary balance between wood and fruit without losing its spontaneity.

Wine Advocate 91 Points

The nose of the 2014 Malbec is remarkably similar to the 2013 showing high-pitched aromas of wild berries and flowers. Its in the palate where you find a little more savoriness, perhaps more spicy flavors with a slightly bitter finish. It's a blend of grapes from different location across Mendoza that represents very well what is the Achával-Ferrer interpretation of Malbec.-LG

James Suckling 90 Points

This is so savory and subtle with lemon and blackberry character. Full-bodied, yet dense and refined. Such beauty. Pure. Drink now.
