Nicolas Catena has been instrumental in Argentina’s progress over the last three decades, bringing the country's wine industry into line with world class standards. What you can now get for your money in the present day climate are seriously good expressions of the nation's signature varietal, Malbec, that rival many Australian reds for punch and price. Made by fourth generation vintner Laura Catena and chief winemaker, Alejandro Vigil, this wine is sourced from three high altitude vineyards with maturation taking place in a mix of new, second and third use French oak barrels for 12 months.

A beautiful rendition of Argentinean Malbec that will have you reaching for another glass before you know it.

Totally opaque black dark red core with a deep dark red hue. Gorgeous aromatics of ripe blackcurrant, liquorice and to a lesser extent blueberry meld into dusty cedar, scorched earth, hints of tobacco and spicy dried herbs. Medium to full bodied, rich dark cherry, blueberry, blackcurrant and liquorice fruits provide the wine with a succulent feel, sitting over a back drop of scorched earth, clove, dark chocolate and a spicy dusting of cedar. Well integrated, faintly chewy tannins provide the structure. Finishes long, generous and delicious.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews….
This is a dense and refined red with a minerality underneath. Full body, firm and silky with pretty blue fruit and light salt undertones. Shows tension and structure. Drink now.
