Achaval-Ferrer Finca Bella Vista Malbec 2013
Located in Perdriel, in Luján de Cuyo, a classical zone in the province or Mendoza, the 2013 Malbec Finca Bella Vista had the same treatment as the rest of the single-vineyards, which means aging in 100% new French oak barriques. In addition, in 2013 they started using no less than 50% 160-liter barrels for the élevage, and against all odds the oak is really imperceptible here. There are wild berries, acidic strawberries, violets and some balsamic aromas that characterize the incredibly elegant and subtle nose. The palate reveals a silky texture and superb acidity with juicy fruit, sophisticated tannins, great balance and length. 18,000 bottles produced.
