Catena Malbec

Country: Argentina

Featured in: Series 2

Featured in: Episode 2

If they did ISO standards for grape varieties, Catena would be chosen for Malbec. This is what Malbec taste like. Intense and dark to look at, bright and bouncy to taste. Lots of plums and violet and a dark berry and cocoa flavour. Despite its reputation as a steak wine (it’s glorious by the way) the supple tannins are surprisingly versatile. Let that lithe mouthfeel play with spaghetti bolognese or sausages.
