For all the great wines we’ve been fortunate to offer from South America in recent years, there’s one that’s well overdue for some recognition. It’s a wine that boasts serious history and comes from some of the oldest vines in Argentina, yet has somehow managed to be overshadowed by other high-scoring bottles from the same family portfolio. And while that’s a testament to the brilliance of winemaker Alejandro Vigil, today we have the opportunity to share with you the brilliant Catena Argentino.

A blend of estate-grown Malbec from Catena’s Nicasia and Angélica vineyards, the Argentino made its debut in 2004 and is no stranger to great press. Just three vintages of this cuvée have failed to receive a score of at least 95 points. A number of recent vintages have started to climb into territory usually reserved for Argentina’s ultra-premium wines that sell for £100-£200+ per bottle. Even with this impressive consistency, the 2019 Argentino is shaping up to be a Malbec on a completely different level from those earlier releases.

Boasting some of the most striking artwork in fine wine, Argentino’s label pays tribute to the history of Malbec, depicting the variety’s history in France and its rise in Argentina.

Our respect and admiration for the Catena wines is no secret, and the 2019 Argentino explains why. It’s no longer possible to simply compare them with the great wines of South America as these Malbecs are now making a case for being some of the best pound-for-pound wines you’ll find anywhere in the world at their respective price points.

We are delighted to offer this 99-point Argentino which, at £250 per case of 4, offers a lot of bang for your buck!

The 2019 Catena Malbec Argentino will be arriving at AMFW early next year.
