Achaval-Ferrer is a winery of extreme quality, focused on the production of excellent quality red wines, which are of superior character and style, belonging to the group of the great wines of the world.


WS 91 WA 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Fresh and floral, featuring crushed raspberry and racy cherry notes on a minerally frame, with silky tannins marking the lengthy finish.


According to Wine Advocate - The 2012 Malbec (first vintage was 2003) is a blend of three vineyards from Medrano, one from Lujan, one from Gualtallary (the highest altitude) and one from La Consulta in the Uco Valley. There is a short fermentation (7 days) but it resulted in a very dark-colored, ripe wine with aromas of blackberries, a touch of red fruit, and hints of smoke and spices. It is quite intense. The old vines are always different in the nose and the palate and this feels like an old-vine Malbec, medium-bodied palate, supple, mineral, rounder, velvety, grapy and silkier. Tannin and alcohol are well-integrated and in the background.


According to International Wine Cellar - Full, bright ruby-red. Porty yet high-pitched aromas of blackberry, kirsch, blueberry and violet are complicated by balsamic and black olive nuances. Dense, thick and superripe but still with noteworthy clarity to its dark fruit and fresh fig flavors. A nutty oak element is leavened by insinuating acidity. Ultimately displays a very attractive sugar/acid balance and finishes with good lift. Rated 90+
