2018 Achával-Ferrer 'Finca Mirador' Malbec Maipú
Winemaker Notes: With Finca Mirador the goal is to allow the vineyard to express its "terroir". Mirador vineyard was planted in 1921 over an ancient dry river bed in Medrano. Mirador is sun, sand and furious heat; and although water is not longer flowing through this dry river, a cool breeze comes down every night and helps to maintain the natural acidity of this full ripen Malbec. Always austere, with a core of black fruit and spices, this wine will open in multilayers as time passes by.
Vinous - "From Medrano, Junín, the 2018 Malbec Finca Mirador spent 15 months in new barrels. Dark purple in hue, the aromas offer ripe plum and blackberry jam with hints of balsam and bay leaf over secondary oaky notes. Potent in the mouth with alcoholic energy and mild freshness, the intense jammy flavors are accompanied by delicate tannins. This is a smooth wine of surprising delicacy given how concentrated it is."
James Suckling - "Plenty of plummy fruit with cherries and flowers on the nose, as well as walnuts. Full-bodied with round, juicy tannins and lots of spicy fruit at the finish. Hints of vanilla with the fruit at the end."
Wine Enthusiast - "Opening with aromas of chocolate-covered cherry and hints of thyme, this wine from the Finca series comes from 100-yearold vines planted in Medrano, Junin. It has concentrated ripe cherry and prune flavors alongside dried herbs. Showing a ripe and classic Malbec style, it offers round tannins and finishes with notes of chocolate."
