Nicolás Catena was the first South American winemaker to ever be named 'Decanter's Man of the Year'.
No wonder when he pioneered high-altitude Malbec in the Argentine Andes. Before that, Argentina was only seen as a producer of cheap bulk wine. The Catena's changed all that. Nicolás' great-grandfather, Nicola, planted his first Malbec vines in 1902. Since then, the family have amassed a collection of Malbec varietals which are exclusive to them. It makes the Catena's wines completely distinct from other Argentine Malbecs.
Bold. Ripe. Fruity. It's a big wine with lots of flavour - and a lovely plush texture. It's crying out for grilled meats - think barbecued steak with a punchy chimichurri sauce.
