Achaval Ferrer Finca Altamira Mendoza Malbec 2016 (Argentina) Rated 97JSMore from Achaval Ferrer
James Suckling Review
Superbly fragrant and floral with ethereal red flowers and red plums, as well as cherries and an alluring, spicy edge. The palate has a very composed, coolly refined and plush feel with succulent red plums, cherries and spicy, earthy notes cast on long, fine, lacy and very plush tannins. Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
Altamira vineyard was planted in 1950 at the foothill of the Andes just below the Tunuyan River, Altamira is a mountain with extreme weather. Quiet and calm are mixed into the intensity of the peaks of Tunuyan. It is the most symmetrical of the vineyards: it possesses a ray of aromas ranging from black and red fruits to passing flowers to spices and minerals. It is rich, fresh and opulent, complex and fascinating. Altamira always has a new story to share.
