Mellow floral and slightly musky scents of Torrontes dominate on the nose, with ripe green and tropical fruit in the mouth, deftly balanced acidity, a lick of mineral and lingering floral and fruity finish.
Bright, pale gold, big appealing nose of Granny Smith with pineapple and citrus. Medium bodied, satiny texture and nicely balanced acidity carry lots of lychee and melon, but a slightly short finish. Drink well chilled and soon, with anything in a cream sauce.
Simple, with some light cherry and plum flavours, a touch of espresso and a rather short finish. Neither offensive nor compelling.
Offers surprisingly deep aromatic and flavour profile for the price. Refined fruit flavours suggest red cherry and plum with fine spice, good tannic grip, smooth velvet texture and flawless balance.
San Juan is located to the north of Mendoza. Purple colour; sweet red and black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry), spicy oak. The intense fruity taste fills the mouth along with barely rough tannins. Tame acidity, nice round middle palate. Generous and pleasant to drink now.
Classic Argentinean Malbec nose with currant fruit and delicate spice. Harmoniously integrated red and dark fruit on the palate backed by supple tannins with notes of chocolate, spice and impeccably balanced finish.
This is from a varietal series by Catena’s winemaker Alejandro Viggiani. The Malbec is lovely with concentrated aromas of blackberry, vanilla, violets, plums and spice. It’s rich and savoury in the mouth with raspberry jam and dark fruits on a bed of soft tannins. Great sipping wine.
