2010 Achával Ferrer Malbec Mendoza
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Malbec was sourced from three vineyards, two of which are 66 and 86 years of age, with the wine aged for 9 months in French oak. It is a super-fragrant offering featuring racy red fruits, spice box, incense, and floral notes. Pure, sweetly-fruited, and elegant in the glass, this intense, lengthy Malbec can be approached now and over the next 6-8 years.
This lovely red displays aromas of violet and crushed raspberry, following through to a medium-bodied palate, which lingers with a pleasant aftertaste of licorice and mint. Drink now.
Achaval Ferrer is one of Argentina's top Malbec producers. Produced from Malbec sourced from vineyards located in Mayor Drummond, La Consulta and Medrano sub-zones of the huge Mendoza region, this blend of distinctive terroirs is just one element of detail that distinguishes Achaval Ferrer's Malbec from others.
