ACHAVAL FERRER MALBEC '13
This wine completes Achaval-Ferrer's exploration of Malbec. Through other wines we've expressed Malbec as a terroir driven wine and as a key building bloc of a complex blend. This Mendoza appellation Malbec expresses the pure tipicity of the variety. Low yields, careful vineyard management and low intervention winemaking are the hallmark of this and other Achaval-Ferrer wines.
2013 Malbec 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.
