Achaval Ferrer Finca Altamira 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

With Finca Mirador our goal is to allow the vineyard to express its “terroir”. Malbec is the flagship red variety from Argentina. It has found in Mendoza its true home. We work as hard as necessary during eleven months in the vineyard, to produce grapes that will need very little intervention during the winemaking process. The climate, the viticulturural program, the irrigation management: Everything is thought as a step towards the goal of true expression of the vineyard. Finca Mirador´s personality shines through the wine, vintage after vintage, with a recognizable and repeated signature. Fermentation took place in a small tank. At dryness, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barrels, 100% new, where it was then aged for 14 months.

A stunning nose of blackberry and boysenberry confiture that never gets heady leads to a massively endowed palate of fruit, lavender flower, mineral, tar and graphite flavors. Superlong finish, with hints of dark chocolate, shows both power and elega... Wine Spectator. A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2003 Achaval Ferrer Malbec Finca Altamira 750ml
