Expert Opinion

What our expert says

Mendoza is the place for Malbec and the go-to producer has to be Catena, putting Argentina on the world wine map with this signature grape. Fruit was sourced from three high-altitude vineyards in the Uco, Lulunta and Agrelo valleys for this bespoke parcel, giving the wine fantastic concentration. There’s plum, vanilla and spice, gently wrapped in supple tannins. Laura Jewell MW, Tesco Category Product Development Manager

In the press...

Of the 2011 vintage, The Wine Gang said: Coming from the relentlessly impressive stable that is Catena, how can this be anything other than class? The Malbec comes from three sub-regions in Mendoza and the wine is generous, ripe and meaty with fruitcake, prunes and liquorice. Rich, polished and full of fruit.

Of the 2011 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "Another Malbec from the great Catena winery, this is sourced from three high-altitude vineyards in the Uco, Lulunta and Agrelo Valleys. The result is astounding: it's grand, detailed and reeking of class. A spectacular wine at a very keen price."

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 30/05/2014

Background

History

From the very beginning The Wines of Catena set out to discover the best places to plant vineyards in Mendoza, identifying the best microclimates for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Malbec. In addition, new techniques of cluster thinning and harvest practices were implemented to further increase concentration. This research program also led to the conclusion that the poor soils near the Andes, were actually ideal for quality viticulture.

Regional info

Located by the Andes Mountains in west Argentina, the province of Mendoza is renowned for housing some of the best winegrowing regions of Argentina. The character of Mendoza wines is forged in high altitude desert vineyards irrigated by mineral-rich snowmelt from glaciers and snowfields. Altitudes range from 1,000 to 5,000 feet, where the foothills rise steeply toward the Andes' peaks. High altitude means cool temperatures, clear air and more sunlight which develops flavour.
