Vinification Details

  • The grapes were harvested in March and April, destemmed and crushed. Prior to fermentation the must was cold soak for 3 days. Fermentation occurred in upright steel tanks for 16 days at a temperature of around 28/30°C. This wine underwent malolactic fermentation to create a mouthfeel, before aging the wine in French and American Oak.

History

  • 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 Information

  • 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. High altitude means cool temperatures and clear air, and clear air means more sunlight for building flavor in the grapes, helping to make Mendoza the source of Argentina's well-earned reputation for top quality, unique wines.

Awful

1 stars

This wine was not up to the usual Tesco Finest standard. It was sour and vinegary...very disappointing...…will not be buying this again. Come on Tesco you can do better, for instance the Trivento range is excellent.

This is a superb wine and fantastic value at the d

5 stars

This is a superb wine and fantastic value at the discounted price. There is a dominant plum and blackberry scent to the wine and it is delicious to taste with subtle oak from the French/American barrel exposure enhancing a long fruity finish. The pairing advice on the bottle is spot on, though it is also delicious on its own. Rather too delicious!

Terrible bottle of wine

1 stars

Opened the bottle and it tasted fine but smelt absolutely terrible, like dirty nappies, couldn’t drink it at all. Only ordered last week! I love a Malbec but will not be ordering this one again anytime soon! If I could give it 0 stars I would!

Hardly finest !

Finest Argentina Malbec

2 stars

I too was very disappointed with this wine the first Finest I have had from Tesco that did not live up to the name,

Extremely Poor

1 stars

This wine was sold as the same product offered before Christmas, the original was nothing short of outstanding. I ordered a second batch which was delivered and subsequently returned as inferior. Again the replacement was sent and it was delivered as the same inferior batch. I now use it as cooking wine. This is the first Tesco Finest wine which is just very poor and not up to their normal standards. Sorry leave well alone!!!!

Poor

2 stars

Overly oaked causing the wine to be unnaturally vanilla biased. No length of flavour, ended up discarding half a bottle

A brilliant wine!

5 stars

This is a wonderful wine, smooth and really delicious. It really lives up to its "Finest" name. Its pricing makes it outstanding value. What a winner!

Great Value

5 stars

Excellent value , good well rounded wine, easy drinking.

Not 'Finest' any more

3 stars

This product has really gone off - currently they are selling the 2016 vintage. Shame, it was very good. Won't buy it again. Tesco buyers need to ensure ' Finest' brand consistency.
