Achával Ferrer Finca Mirador

¥14,000

Finca Mirador is a sunonym of character and refinement, something that is notably magnified after a decade of life.

A very mineral wine arise, with shades of graphite; dense and concentrated. Finca Mirador is an indecipherable book: earth, clay strength and vigour.

Winery Description

Achával-Ferrer was founded in 1998 based on two sound principles: the search for the highest quality in all products and respect for the terroir. The idea was to make full use of the extreme personality of Argentina’s soil, its plentiful sunshine and the rarity of its ancient, upgrafted vineyards, almost an exclusivity in today’s world of viticulture.

Achával-Ferrer is based on the friendship and respect of two very strong cultures, the Italian and the Argentinian. The sharp and intuitive vision of Italian winemaker Robert Cipresso, has led to a greater understanding of terroir in a way that is unprecedented in Argentina.

The vineyards are located in the province of Mendoza, Argentina, at the foot of the Andes mountain range. The desert -like conditions of soil and climate are ideal for growing Malbec and other red varieties. Low yields, poor and well drained soils, great thermal amplitude (warm days and cold nights): everything combines to ripen grapes that can be made into balanced, complex, deep, structured wines.
