ACHAVAL-FERRER - MENDOZA, ARGENTINA - WITH JULIO LASMARTRES (DEVONPORT)
For many serious wine loves, the top Malbec in the world is made by Achaval-Ferrer. Situated in the best hilltop viineyards of Mendoza, they are very much the first family of Argentinean wine. Their vines are pre-phylloxera with an average age of 107 years! Very high density planting with very low yields.The vineyard is irrigated the traditional way, with water channels. In the winery there are no addtions or interventions, these are extremely pure. The style of Achaval-Ferrer wines is a balance of ripeness and natural acidity for freshness. These are much more elegant and refined Malbecs than you might have tried previously, a bridge between the old world and the new world. We have their director Julio Lasmartres here to present these incredible wines. We will be tasting Achaval-Ferrer Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Cabernet Franc 2016, Malbec 2017, Quimera 2014. We will finish with their three legendary single vineyard Malbecs, where it takes 3 vines to produce just one bottle. Finca Mirador 2013, Finca Bella Vista 2013 and Finca Altamira 2014.
