Argentina has been going from strength to strength dipping into the fine world wine market. Septima Tierra 1310 is a perfect example of this, a single vineyard from a relatively big producer situated at 1310 meters above sea level where beautiful clear hot days and clear cool nights are perfect for the ripening of grapes. Very little intervention needs to be done in its viticulture as nature does the most important work. The wine is full bodied, concentrated and deep almost with a reminiscence of a Bordeaux and a Rioja but yet typical Malbec with caressing soft velvety tannins but remaining masculine, full bodied with great potency and able to age for 10 years plus.
This wine is a great example of the Vista Flores terroir. It has aromas of black pepper, plums and tobacco. On the mouth, it presents an elegant profile with a robust finish. There are notes of blackcurrant and spice with a long-lasting, full-bodied flavour.
An extraordinarily beautiful Malbec from Mendoza that completely over delivers on its quality compared to its price. Dark, full bodied with a slightly dark chocolate flavour, rich and concentrated. Beautiful with a grilled steak or any grilled meats.
Another single vineyard biodynamically farmed as is the case with the Malbec but this is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon at its finest. Ripe with hints of dust, blueberry and cassis with an enormous middle palate, ripe tannins and extremely long finish. Approachable now however this will reach its peak in roughly 4-5 years time and continue to improve further.
A single vineyard biodynamic Malbec from Ernesto Catena’s Finca Nakbe in Vistaflores, Mendoza. This is to put it simply stunning, extremely full bodied with hints of leather, wild spice, dry herbs and supple tannins. Very mineral, very full bodied yet very elegant and balanced with an enormous finish. Approachable now once decanted however will cellar for up to 10 years. Simply put one of the best Malbecs from Argentina!
Made by Ernesto Catena, the son of Nicolas Catena who pretty much single handedly put malbec from Mendoza on the world map. This is also from Mendoza, the ideal region to make Malbec, high altitude, natural irrigation from the Andes, hot during the day, hot during summer and cool nights. Full body and concentrated with great depth, lovely aromas of dark chocolate, blackberries yet with very suave and supple tannins and excellent length. Great with great steaks, grilled chops, in fact any grilled meats. Approachable now however drinking over the next 4-5 years.
Another clear example of why Argentina is producing the very best Malbec in the world. From Mendoza, a region situated at a very high altitude above sea level therefore producing very low yields and very natural wines. In the true style of Malbec, it has soft supple tannins with great concentration, minerality and high expression. The 2016 is another very good vintage even though vintages in Mendoza do no vary that much because of its topography. Excellent with grilled steaks, sausages and also pastas. Drink now or cellar for 5-6 years.
Septima Noche literally translated means Seventh Night. This is a deviation from what you would come to expect from Mendoza in Argentina where Malbec is the king. A robust, concentrated Pinot Noir that is probably more the style of a Burgundy than the Kiwi type, savoury and ripe with ample and rich middle palate, a beautiful expression of its varietal that will also cellar for the next 4-5 years. Something distinctive that you should make a point of trying.
A very full bodied Malbec with great extraction, concentration and depth. Very young at the moment but will cellar for the next 7-10 years. On the palate it delivers an array of leather, spice, blackberry and candid fruits. Even though the level of alcohol is very high, however it is still perfectly balanced with great finesse and great purity. Ideal with BBQ steaks, sausages etc.
Another example of what Argentina is doing with this grape variety, they really have become the masters at it. Even countries such as Spain and Italy where they are head and shoulders above the rest are finding it difficult to make wines of this quality at the price. A full body wine with intensity and power, yet very elegant and balanced, depth, structure, complexity, everything is here. Quite remarkable for a wine around the $20 mark to have so much on offer. An array of mocha, smoke and old leather with sensational middle palate focus and purity, it is the sort of stuff that you expect from something around the $50 mark. You’ll enjoy this, why bother with pretenders?
