Sipping Fine Wine

Founded in 1998, Achaval-Ferrer is a team of friends who make great wines. Aged in new French oak for about 18 months deep Ruby with aromas of fresh black fruits, flowers and burnt earthy tones. On the palate sweet raspberry and dark berry fruits with tobacco herb spice, good balance and acidity. Fine tannins, lingering ending with earthy mineral character. Very nice! Tasting Sample!

70 years old vines. Black cassis, blackberry and black cherry explosions. Very polished. The oak is very nicely integrated. Graphite and minerals made it a lot interesting. Extremely well made Malbec.

The most powerful and forward of the three single-Finca wines from Achaval Ferrer, this is also from the (relatively) lowest altitude Vineyard site. Black fruit, silky texture, pronounced well -integrated tannins. Even young this wine has a rustic charm to it

Beautiful spot actually. Maybe the best Arg Malbec I've had to date. Nice tobacco and pencil lead with bright red fruit.

Highly polished Malbec, dark cherry, dry, well balanced. Great drinking today, should be good for a decade.

Lots of personality and structure with a superb display of lilac, spice and black cherry.
