One of Argentina’s top wineries, Achával-Ferrer produces a trio of flagship single-vineyard Malbec bottlings. The Finca Bella Vista comes from 100-year-old vines planted at an altitude of 3,100 feet in the prime Perdriel district in the Luján de Cuyo appellation, which features a high proportion of clay. Winemaker Roberto Cipresso keeps yields low, typically a minuscule 14 hectoliters per hectare (about 1 ton per acre), and ages the wine for 15 months in 100 percent new French oak barrels.
