Tasting Notes

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.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 1 year

Expert Opinion

In the press...

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."

Jamie Goode - S Magazine (Sunday Express) 20/10/2013

Background

History

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.

Mendoza is considered the heart of the winemaking industry in Argentina.
