Achával-Ferrer - Malbec Mendoza 2021 (750ml)
James Suckling: 93 Points
Plenty of fruit on the nose with a nice reductive and peppery edge. Dark cherries and strawberries with spiced plums and violets. Firm, flavorful and medium- to full-bodied on the palate with tight, fine-grained tannins. Fresh, fruit-oriented finish.
Vinous Media: 93 Points
The 2021 Malbec Mendoza is 50% from the Uco Valley, 40% from Luján de Cuyo and 10% from Medrano, all in Mendoza, and spent nine months in used French oak. Purple in color. The vivid nose delivers fresh plum, sour cherry, violets and a bouquet of herbs accompanied by hints of balsam. Slightly indulgent in the mouth, it’s juicy in spite of its volume and grippy tannins. A well-rounded wine with hints of lavender perfume on the long, bold finish.
