Made from Argentina's most famous grape and by the country's most famous producer of Malbec, Catena.
This is a wonderful, heady mix of dark bramble fruits, plum and blueberry too.
Absolutely loves being teamed up with steak.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 1 year

Of the 2012 vintage, Jamie Goode said: "Argentine Malbec is a shoo-in if you are looking for a warming red. This one is sweetly fruited, dense and focused, with ripe, juicy black fruits and a lovely smooth texture. It's quaffable with or without food."
Nicolas Catena was the third generation of his family to make wine in Mendoza but the first to see the potential in planting higher and higher vineyards in search of cool climate sites ideal for the production of fine wine. Today, over a decade on from the first Catena Malbec in 1994, he works with his daughter Laura (who improbably juggles her work as an ER surgeon in San Francisco with the family business) in their relentless pursuit of the finest possible quality wines from their unique vineyard sites.
The Mendoza Province is one of Argentina's most important wine regions, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the country's entire wine production. Located in the eastern foothills of the Andes, in the shadow of Mount Aconcagua, vineyards are planted at the some of the highest altitudes in the world with the average site located 1,970–3,610 feet (600–1,100 meters) above sea level. Mendoza is considered the heart of the winemaking industry in Argentina.
