Achaval Ferrer 2011 Malbec, Finca Mirador, Mendoza
The Finca Mirador vineyard is 13 acres of old vine Malbec in Medrano, Mendoza, at an altitude of 2,400 feet on the west bank of the Tunuyan river. The vines were planted in 1921 on their own roots. Yield per plant was less than one pound of grapes. (1/3 of a bottle of wine) This is equivalent to 0.9 tons per acre.Fermentation took place in a small tank. At dryness, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barrels, 100% new, where it was then aged for 15 months. The wine was then bottled unfined and unfiltered. The Wine Advocate scored this 95 points and said "The vines in Finca Mirador were planted half in 1928 and half in 1942, the latter pruned double-Guyot. The 2010 Finca Mirador is from the Medrano sub-region, originating from heavier, clayey soils and aged in new French barrels for 16 months. The nose is more expressive than the Finca Bella Vista with cassis and blueberry aromas imbued with a sorbet like freshness and vivacity. After 20 minutes, there is an estuarine, oyster shell scent emerging. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and a surprising sense of reserve and sophistication that could probably show Bordeaux a few lessons in restraint! It draws you in to its complexity and its precise, delineated finish of black currant pastille, sea salt and crushed stone that lingers long in the mouth. This is an outstanding Argentinean Malbec. Drink 2016-2035." and it was a Top 100 selection in the Wine Spectator. They scored it 96 points and said "This pure, racy red exhibits a dark side, with layers of spice, graphite and maduro tobacco to the crushed raspberry, blackberry and concentrated cassis fruit. Needs time in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2022."
