Heiner Lobenberg über:
Finca Mirador 2013


Lobenberg: Reiner Malbec-Weinberg auf 700 Meter Höhe in Medrano, Mendoza, am Westufer des Rio Runuyan. Gefüllt ohne Schönung und Filtration. Der immens dichte, schwarzrote Wein ist etwas weniger explosiv in seinem Tannin-Säure-Spiel als der Bella Vista, dafür überragend in seinem erdig, würzigen Ausdruck voller frischer Pflaume mit Brombeeren, Holunder und Lorbeer. Dazu etwas Thymian und ein fast biodynamischer, erdiger Terroirabdruck. Die eigene Würzigkeit ist das Abbild des Weinbergs und sicher auch der wurzelechten Rebe geschuldet. Ob man nun die explosive Frucht oder den erdig, würzig, tiefen Terroirausdruck vorzieht... Alle drei Crus sind groß. 96-98/100


Parker über: Finca Mirador

-- Parker: Starting with the single-vineyards wines, the 2013 Malbec Finca Mirador comes from a plot of Malbec in Medrano planted with old vines, is the warmest of them all, but don't look for any signs of heat or excess ripeness here as the nose is fresh, vibrant and elegant, and without losing its personality it seems to be taken to a higher stage. There is no trace of oak here, despite the fact that they are now using at least a half of smaller, 160-liter barrels for the aging of their top wines. The palate delivers all the nose has promised, plus a fine thread and a thin line of acidity making it remarkably fresh. 2013 seems to be the best vintage yet. Bravo! There is no 2012 of Finca Mirador, because the canopy of the vines was destroyed by hail, and the vines could not ripen the grapes without leaves, so they were forced to cut all the unripe bunches and drop them. I wonder if this has something to do with the exceptional performance of Mirador in 2013. 12,000 bottles produced. 96/100


Weinwisser über: Finca Mirador

-- Weinwisser: Relativ warme Lage auf nur 700 m Höhe bei Medrano, seidig-dichter, erdiger Stil, dabei von erstaunlicher Zartheit, feinste Frucht, kraftvolle, süsse Tannine, die keineswegs stören, auch weil die Fruchtintensität sie bis ins Finale abpuffert. 19/20


Suckling über: Finca Mirador

-- Suckling: A wine with density and sensibility. Full-bodied yet very refined and silky. I love the length and beauty. It's so shy but shows you how beautiful and sexy it is. Better in 2016 but so right now. 95/100


International Wine Report über: Finca Mirador

-- International Wine Report: The 2013 'Finca Mirador' by Achaval-Ferrer is a stunner from this estate. This impressive wine starts with rich aromas of mocha, blackberry, blueberry compote and violets. This wine just has an incredible range of aromatics. There is lovely freshness and purity of fruit on the mid-palate. The wine has rich flavors of violets, blueberry, milk chocolate, wild blackberry and rose petals. The range and depth is enchanting. This is impossible to resist right now but it will continue to gain secondary components as it ages. 95/100


Galloni über: Finca Mirador

-- Galloni: Bright, saturated ruby. Cassis, licorice, bitter chocolate, minerals and a whiff of smoked meat on the nose. Richer and sweeter than the Bella Vista bottling, but with pungent minerality, showing slightly riper acidity and a suggestion of dark chocolate to mellow out its penetrating flavors of blackberry and cassis. This wine, too, is utterly primary and backward but it's balanced from the start. A wine of outstanding density and energy; very few Argentine Malbecs can approach this one for inner-mouth tension. Finishes with noble tannins and subtle, slow-building length. Wonderfully fine-grained, seamless wine with terrific floral lift. Really spreads out to saturate the palate on the back end without leaving any impression of weight. An incredible vintage for this wine. 95/100

Achaval Ferrer

Erst gegen Ende der 90er-Jahre wurde das kleine Mustergut (nur 150 Tausend Flaschen geplante Gesamtmenge) in Mendoza aus der Taufe gehoben. Das Weingut ist die Verwirklichung von Jugendträumen der in der Werbung arbeitenden Besitzer, weniger ein richtiges Kommerzprojekt.
