Run by the son of the Catena family (yet it is a small industry) and set up to make progressive and modern wines from the great vineyards of Mendoza. Sourced from high altitude vineyards that make a more refined and aromatic style of Malbec. Still plenty of acid and tannin but with brighter red fruits compared to some.
Mendoza – Without question the jewel in the crown of Argentina. A large region. Lots of young and innovative producers have moved in and are slowly mapping out sub-regions and single vineyards of note. Look out for great Malbec but lots of experimentation means you can find all sorts of wonderful wines.
Malbec – Native to South West France, Malbec is a minor player in Bordeaux and the major grape in the underappreciated Cahors. It has long been the star of Argentina. It makes wines that are intense, tannic, dark fruited with nice acidity. Perfect match for a country that consumes a lot of meat.
