Achaval Ferrer Malbec vineyards are located in the provence of Mendoza, Argentina, at the foot of the Andes Mountain range. The desert-like conditions of soil and climate are ideal for growing Malbec. Low yields, poor and well drained soils, and warm days and cold nights all contribute to ripen grapes that can be made into balanced, complex, deep structured wines.
This wine is bottled without fining or filtering. The formation of deposits in the bottle are noticeable after some cellaring time, and decanting is recommended at least an hour before drinking.
The wine was aged during 10 months in French Oak barrels. Special care was taken to preserve the necessary balance between wood and fruit without losing its spontaneity.
