A brief history
Achaval Ferrer Wines
Malbec Mendoza is an inevitable reflection of the variety that is emblematic to our country, the mountainous ranges of the Andes and the sun. Composed of various vineyards, located in the major geographic references that the Cuyana province offers, this young wine, potent and velvety wine, expresses pleasure, smooth and soft, combining land and flavors in one clear strong message. This wine explains Malbec as well as Mendoza in one universal language.
In Tupungato heights, Cabernet Franc has found a home of its own in Argentina. Great sun exposure combined with a cool mountain breeze, allows this grape variety to ripen famously providing a full pallet of aromas and flavors: from black fruit to tomatoes leaf and rosemary. Some people have described this Cabernet Franc as aromatic and expressive as a Chinon (Loire Valley) with the tannin structure and grip of a St. Emilion (Bordeaux).
True to its varietal, Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon is a sharply focused expression of black and red fruits and subtle mineral notes. This Old World inspired, limited production wine, offers refined yet firm tannins and a bright acidity that gives it a lush texture through a long finish.
The book definition of what a Merlot should be in a good vintage. Deep purple color. This wine is fresh and complex, with tomato leaves, plums and spicy notes in nose and palate. The wine is textured, round and silky with elegant tannins and a long complex finish. Low yields, careful vineyard management and low intervention winemaking are the hallmarks of this and all other Achaval Ferrer wines.
Bella Vista vineyard was planted in 1910 at the Mendoza River south bank in the region of Perdriel (Lujan de Cuyo). Achaval Ferrer Finca Bella Vista is distinguished by its smoothing features and finely meshed texture. It is elegant and aromatic with an endless finish and a juicy acidity that stands out. It is the most elegant expression of Malbec that you will find anywhere.
Mirador vineyard was planted in 1921 over an ancient dry riverbed in Medrano. Mirador is sun, sand and furious heat; and although water is no longer flowing through this dry river, a cool breeze comes down every night and helps to maintain the natural acidity of this full ripen Malbec. Always monolitical and austere, with a core of black fruit and spices, this wine will open in multilayers as years pass by.
