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. Like a wise elder, Altamira always has a new story to share.
TASTING NOTES Dark medium ruby. Blackberry, black plum, violet, cassis and a touch of leather on the nose. Silky on the palate, fresh acidity and refined tannins. Marked layers of espresso with a long floral very expressive finish.
Warm-Blend. Unique tecnique. Quimera is architecture and design; it is a unique warm-blend that was conceived at the vineyard. Every year Santiago and Roberto look for the meaning within the earth in the search for the impossible wine, making it unique year after year.
Thus resulting in a wine with deep shades, aromas that range from stony and earthy, of dark fruits to delicate accents of rosemary, open mouthed, almost feminine and deliciously sour.
Quimera is heuristic; it is personal discovery and the search of perfection.
TASTING NOTES Medium ruby. Floral aromas with blackberry, blueberry and cassis. Concentrated, well-integrated with flavors of crushed blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate-tobacco. Outstanding cellaring capacity.
Finca Mirador could not see the light in 2012. The winery has the guideline not to use anti-hail nets, as we harm the development of the grape.
Therefore, the force of the stone that year left us without this item
TASTING NOTES Pristine medium ruby. Layers of spice with aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and espresso-tobacco. Displaying a savory character with graphite, leather and pepper. Herbs and spices add personality. Finishes with chewy elegant tannins. Endless possibilities in the cellar.
From the very beginning the winery has held strong to a phrase that describes us: Achaval-Ferrer is above all, a group of friends.
Today after many years have passed we try our very best every day to honor that phrase. As a group we continue to grow together, pursuing the daily challenge of being the best Argentine wine year after year.
Since the time it was founded, the wine cellar has pursued a path strongly marked by its philosophy and its vision of wine. Its Italian roots, given by Robert Cipresso himself, have been a pivotal contribution as an ideological foundation, which has been strengthened by team thinking, experience and oenological results.
Today, the cellar leaves an unmistakable seal on each one of its wines; this is a result of years of coherence, obsession and respect for nature.
