The 2019 harvest will be remembered as a great harvest for Mendoza and for Achaval Ferrer. It was very typical of Mendoza, with a dry, fresh climate with some light breezes and sunshine at all stages. A vintage very similar to 2011, medium warmth and humidity, with rainfall close to 150-180mm and average temperatures of 19.5° during the months of October to April in the Province of Mendoza. High temperatures during the day and cool nights allowed the stomata of the canopy to rest for long periods of the day, granting homogeneous growth in the bunches and a good concentration of the message of terroir. The 2019 harvest stands out for its authenticity, given that it was a year of great expressions of terroir.
The three gems born in 2019 are:
Achaval Ferrer Finca Bella Vista 2019, sourced from a 113-year-old vineyard, is elegant due to a favourable climate for the typical expression of Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo. Its violet profiles on the nose and a silkiness in the middle of the palate indicate that the ripeness was optimal. Typical expressions of Finca Bella Vista and its soft tannins are present, as expected, but in 2019 we also see elegant notes both on the nose and in the middle of the palate.
Achaval Ferrer Finca Mirador 2019, sourced from 102-year-old vineyard stands out with an elegant profile marked by black fruits and spices. In 2019, it showcases the finest and most delightful expression of this eastern vineyard.
Achaval Ferrer Finca Altamira 2019, sourced from a 73-year-old vineyard, is a true expression of its terroir, with fresh fruit and mineral notes. This mountain wine shows a unique and exotic profile. Due to its singular soil and the magnificent climate this year, 2019 is among the best years for Finca Altamira.
