Quimera Achaval-Ferrer 2016

Achaval-Ferrer ticks lots of our boxes. Ancient, low yielding vines, high altitude freshness and large diurnal variation all help in giving complexity to these wines. Quimera is Achaval-Ferrer's 'Bordeaux blend', built around Malbec, with supporting roles for Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

"Jet-plum, essentially opaque and clinging to the glass, this reveals a spicy array of red and black fruit, cherries and berries on the nose, allied to rather savoury, mushroom notes, juniper, pepper - rather hedonistic. The palate reflects the aromatic character of the nose with additional floral notes. Layered and complex, supple and opulent, this is a very fine Quimera, supported by refined, ripe, rather noble tannins. The aim for Quimera is perfection. This is what they refer to as their Bordeaux blend and although less often seen, Malbec does constitute one of the Bordeaux varietals. Two vines are required to make one bottle of Quimera. The wine is fermented in tank before being blended and transferred to oak barrel for malolactic fermentation and 12 months’ ageing. The barrels are 40% new and 60% one year old. "
