Malbec Achaval-Ferrer 2012

Argentina  >  Mendoza

This is an all time favourite amongst the Corney & Barrow team - small wonder. It is an outstanding ambassador for the Malbec grape - which is precisely the aim of the Achaval Ferrer team.

Dark and sultry, this, typically for Malbec, is rich and intensely coloured. Atypical and it is the old vines, low yields and relatively high altitudes which account for it. It is the heady perfume, the heightened aromatics and a delightful balance of berries, cherries and savoury nuances; pepper, juniper and pink pepper, making it highly attractive. Though very young, this will hit the ground running and will make people smile. The term "crowd-pleaser" is so overused as to be almost pejorative, hinting at a lack of seriousness. This, however, as well as offering carefree pleasure, can also produce contemplative ponderings and the setting of the world to rights - lovely wine.
