Founded in 1998, Achaval-Ferrer is a team of friends who dream about great wines. Achaval-Ferrer is also a collection of old vineyards in beautiful places. They are committed to the production of wines that are expressive of their terroir. They are a small winery because this is the key to top quality. Low yields allow the vineyards to express their personality in the grapes. Low intervention winemaking allows the grapes to fully express their vineyard in the bottle. Each of their wines is a different expresson of Malbec: The Mendoza Malbec is about varietal tipicity. Their Quimera blend is about Malbec as the key to complexity and balance. A blend of 38% old vine Malbec; 24%, Merlot; 24% old vine Cabernet Sauvignon; and 14% Cabernet Franc. Old World meets New – with style.

Tasting Notes

Expressive flavors of black cherry, raspberry, violets, and cedar, Quimera is complex, layered and rich. It is recommended that wine decant at least an hour before drinking. This wine can be cellared for 10-20 years.

Food Pairing

Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant so it can be paired with a wide range of meats.
