Attractive cassis and blueberry aromas here with a swathe of crushed violet flowers. The palate has a very supple and smooth core of fresh red plums that offer a fleshy and smooth ride to the finish. Drink or hold.

Achval Ferrers entry-point Malbec is a pan-Mendoza blend from six sub-regions: Agrelo, Gualtallary, Los Chacayes, Medrano, Paraje Altamira and Perdriel. Its always a delight to drink with nuanced oak, glossy tannins and ample blackberry and violet notes.
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.

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.
