Achával-Ferrer TM has one single passion: to craft world-class, terroir-driven red wines from Argentina.

While the winery focuses a great deal on Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone and skeleton of the Malbec. Without a bit of a cab, there would be Malbecs that lack the body.

 

 

 

Today is National Cabernet Sauvignon Day, why not celebrate it with a vintage Cabernet from Achaval Ferrar winery?

I am featuring  2 cabernets – both from Achaval Ferrar Winery! The 2015 Cabernet  Sauvignon is  from Mendoza vineyards. The other wine I am featuring is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon with the same vineyard appellation.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 from the Mendoza vineyard!

 

Since its inception, the winery pursues a path strongly marked by its obsession and respect for nature. The Italian roots, provided by Roberto Cipresso himself, have a fundamental contribution as an ideological foundation that was enhanced by group thinking, experience and oenological results.
Today, the winery prints an unmistakable stamp on each of its wines, the result of years of coherence and joint work.

True to its varietal, the Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon is a sharply focused expression of black and red fruits and subtle mineral notes. Dark ruby red in color with red currant and blackberry on both the nose and palate. This Old World inspired, limited production wine offers refined yet firm tannins and a bright acidity that gives it a lush texture through a long finish. Low yields, careful vineyard management, and low intervention winemaking are the hallmark of this and all other Achával Ferrer wines.

Pairing the wines:

Cabernets work well with meats and rich dishes. Here are a couple of pairings from the

For the pairing recommendations, we’d suggest Argentina-based meat dishes such as

—  Carne Asado (known in the US as Carne Asada)

—  Steak barbequed or grilled – this can be your basic grilled steak or any type of meat slow cook barbeque

— Empanadas : Meat pies that can be made with beef, chicken, cheese, etc.

 Perfect dishes with perfect timing for  National Cabernet Sauvignon Day.. and for your barbecue!
