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.

Great quality good value

Great quality

Was really looking forward to this Malbec. However

1 stars

Was really looking forward to this Malbec. However I have to agree with recent reviews. I bought it after reading previous reviews but I found this wine quite harsh. So much so that after about half a glass it went down the sink. Can only presume that previous reviews were for a previous years bottling. Such a shame. 😥

Finest? One of the most disappointing, insipid Mal

1 stars

Finest? One of the most disappointing, insipid Malbec's I’ve tried. Live and learn.

A super wine with meat dishes.

5 stars

This is a great value wine . Argentinian is actually better than many French Malbecs !

Dreadful

1 stars

As one reviewer said, and I should have taken heed, absolutely awful. I'll never trust 'Tesco's Finest' again.

Absolutely awful. Bought two bottles as it was you

1 stars

Absolutely awful. Bought two bottles as it was your Finest Range. I have to say quite frankly it is un drinkable.

good price and really drinkable, my husband and i

5 stars

good price and really drinkable, my husband and i love it.

Splendid rich malbec, much better than brands

5 stars

I like malbec but this is about the best I've had. We recently ordered three different malbecs in the 6-10 pound category on a bit of a malbec-obsessed week and this was by far the best. Lovely rich flavour, smooth as velvet and lots of depth to the taste. Spot on, I will buy again.

Not really finest...

1 stars

Seems quality has gone down and so has the quantity. This didn't fill up 6 glasses of 125 ml, possibly 20 ml less overall. Either my glass isn't accurate or the bottle didn't have 750. Didn't feel that full bodied either (sad)

Flavourless "tesco finest" malbec.

2 stars

Bought to accompany a olive heavy pasta. I found it flat bodied, spiritless, flavourless and no sign of the "long and fruity finish" . Oh dear. Tesco's finest?! Even at lowered price my advice is don't bother, dont buy.
