    Product Description

    Catena Malbec is sourced and blended from the family's high-altitude vineyards in Maipu, Lujan de Cuyo, Tupungato, and San Carlos. Each vineyard is farmed explicitly in preparation for its role in the final blend. 80-year-old vines in Lunlunta (Maipu) Vineyard lend a soft, sweet texture, and the lauded Catena cuttings in Agrelo (Lujan de Cuyo) Vineyard add spice notes. The cold nights in Altamira (San Carlos) Vineyard lend bright, crisp acidity, and the intense sunshine in Gualtallary (Tupungato) Vineyard gives explosive floral aromatics and concentrated structure. This combination of different vineyard components results in a wine with heightened complexities and unique character with natural balance, concentration, and a distinct varietal identity.

    Catena Malbec presents a deep violet color with purple reflections. This microclimate blend of four unique vineyards offers intense aromas, soft texture, and concentrated flavor. Deep aromas of ripe red and dark fruits are joined by delicate violet and lavender notes, with traces of vanilla and mocha. Flavors of blueberries and blackberries highlight a rich, concentrated mouthfeel with a touch of leather and cinnamon. The wine has well-integrated tannins, bright acidity, and a flinty minerality that provides exceptional length to the finish. Pair with roast turkey, grilled steak, salmon, and pasta with red sauce.
