Achaval-Ferrer Malbec Finca Bella Vista 2004
With Finca Bella Vista our goal is to allow the vineyard to express its “terroir”. Malbec is the flagship red variety from Argentina. It has found in Mendoza its true home. We work as hard as necessary during eleven months in the vineyard, to produce grapes that will need very little intervention during the winemaking process. The climate, the viticultural program, the irrigation management: Everything is thought as a step towards the goal of true expression of the vineyard. Finca Bella Vista´s personality shines through the wine, vintage after vintage, with a recognizable and repeated signature. Fermentation took place in a small tank. At dryness, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barrels, 100% new, where it was then aged for 14 months. All our wines are bottled without fining or filtering. There is additional risk in this, but we prefer not to stripe the wine of subtle flavors and aromas. The formation of deposits in the bottle will be noticeable after some cellaring time. This is no way affects quality. We strongly recommend decanting this wine at least an hour before drinking.
The Bella Vista Ranch, located in the hill country of Wimberley, Texas. Designed to reflect a traditional Italian family farm, the ranch is home to over 1000 producing olive trees, seasonal fruit and vegetables, a frantoio (olive press), a winery, tasting room and gift shop. We sell olive trees of varying size and age for ornamental, home or orchard development purposes and provide fee-based consulting services for large-scale projects.
