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
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.
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.
