Achaval Ferrer is located in the foothills of the Andes
in the province of Mendoza, Argentina. The region’s desert
climate and soil conditions are ideal for the development
of Malbec and other red varieties. Low yields, significant
thermal gradients (warm days, cool nights), poor alluvial
soils, low rainfall, high altitude, and the pure Andes
irrigation water, all work together to mature grapes
that are transformed into complex, deep, and structured
wines by the hands of famed winemaker Roberto Cipresso.
This old-vine blend is 27% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Franc,
24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot.
With expressive aromas and flavors of black cherry, raspberry,
violets, and cedar, Quimera is complex, layered, and
