Achaval Ferrer's 2016 Malbec is the epitome of this great Argentinean style: rich, floral, juicy and elegant.

The fabulously pure fruit yields from old vines and spends nine months in one-year-old French oak to add complexity. It is unfiltered and a true expression of Argentina's wonderful soils. If you love Malbec, we're confident that this will blow you away.

Achaval Ferrer was established in 1998 by a group of Italian/Argentine friends who wanted to deliver high quality wines that showcased the country's great soils and climate for vine growing, moving away from its reputation for mainly mass-market wines. It has now grown to be one of Argentina's finest wine producers with a brilliant winemaking team, including legendary Tuscan winemaker Roberto Cipresso, and is highly regarded for its limited production wines which are made in the vineyard, not the cellar.

"Achaval-Ferrer, under the direction of CEO Santiago Achaval and winemaker Roberto Cipresso, stands at the summit of Argentina wine producers." robertparker.com
