Estate Notes

Achaval Ferrer’s 2013 Quimera vintage is a rich, yet elegant and refined blend of pure Mendoza fruit.

It is matured in small French oak barrels, which help to fully express the fruit, which is selected for this prestigious blend just hours before picking by winemaker Roberto Cipresso - to ensure that only the finest, ripest berries go into this legendary Argentinean wine.

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 highly regarded for its limited production wines which are made in the vineyard, not the cellar.


"...eminently floral. The palate has electric acidity, acid strawberries, it makes you salivate, makes you long for the next sip. Simply delicious. The best Quimera I've tasted."

"Cool, medicinal aromas of blueberry, menthol and fresh herbs, plus a whiff of leather. Densely packed, intense and youthfully tart; this blend will need time for its acidity to harmonize. Slightly herbal and medicinal throughout but with good density to its cherry and licorice flavor. An adamantly dry style, relying more on its strong acidity than dusty tannins for structure and staying power." Stephen Tanzer

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