2010 Achával Ferrer Finca Altamira Malbec La Consulta
- Critic Rating
2010 Achával Ferrer Finca Altamira Malbec La Consulta is a wine made entirely from Malbec, hence very representative of the Argentinian tradition. It is made by one of the most significative producers in the Country, Achával Ferrer, a project started by four friends’ vision and desire of founding their own wine company.
In 1998, Santiago Achával and Roberto Cipresso were driving around seeking a north-facing slope to purchase: Santiago made a comment about a vineyard he saw in a very bad state and Roberto, who was at the wheel, listened in silence. A few days later, Roberto called Santiago asking him to purchase that very piece of land: after tasting the grapes, Santiago said no more and agreed to purchase… Finca Altamira.
From those very grapes, the vintage 1999 received 5 Decanter Stars, the highest ever scored by an Argentinian wine. The vintage we offer you shows flavours of mocca, blackberry and chocolate, perfectly suitable to be paired with beef based dishes, including burgers, or hard cheese and ideal for a Sunday roast or to bring along at a relaxed dinner party.
