ambitiousdream- the creation of world class Argentinian wine. From the outset, the aim of

to the wines’ origins. This is fundamental to the company’s philosophy which echoes the ideals
of all our major principles in that the vineyard itself is seem as fundamental to the very essence
of the finished wine.
28 Malbec 2013, Achaval Ferrer, Mendoza, Argentina £42
Delicate aromas of violets and plums give a hint to the complexity of this wine, but not the
richness of the black cherry, raspberry, spice and smoky on the palate- simply stunning!
