Malbec Achaval-Ferrer 2008

Argentina  >  Mendoza

This award-winning wine is a very fine ambassador for Malbec which proves that quality and elegance are undeniably possible, from what was considered more of a 'workhorse'grape.

Roberto Cipresso (winemaker) is a perfectionist. He respects extraction but also wants to make wines to be enjoyed. This is nonetheless a complex wine, owing much to higher altitudes but also to the quality of the sun - an often overlooked aspect of terroir. This is a Malbec which punches well above its weight. Both the nose and palate present spiced red and black fruit, combining innate power with a lightness of touch and a bright vivacity.
