Wine Advocate’s Luis Gutierrez says: “Catena might be the most important winery in Argentina, producing both quantity and quality… Anything wearing the Catena name is guaranteed to deliver what the label says: grape, vintage and place. Why can't all large producers be like Catena?”


And James Suckling agrees. His report on his recent tasting of 700 Argentinian wines was topped by the perfect 100 point scoring 2012 Adrianna Vineyard Fortuna Terrae Malbec, which he described as the: “La Tâche of Argentina”. We are actively seeking out this wine. However, in the meantime we have secured limited allocations of the following two wines from the same stable, but around half the market price…


Bodega Catena Zapata’s 2012 Malbec Argentino was awarded 98 points by Suckling who called it “salty with wonderful length and intensity”. Gutierrez concurred, describing it as “really tasty” with “balance, harmony, power and freshness”. With a splash of Viognier and Cabernet Franc, Stephen Tanzer calls it a “top-of-the-line cuvée”.


2012 Malbec Nicasia from 35 year old vines received 95 points from both Wine Advocate and James Suckling. Luis Gutierrez said: “it could be the best Nicasia ever produced” and judging by Stephen Tanzer’s description of it being “still an infant”, it obviously has a long and illustrious future ahead of it.
