Why do we love this case?

From its home in southern France to the excellence of Argentine expressions, we are all about malbec here at the ‘fo. It takes us to the snow-capped mountains of the Andes, the architecture of Buenos Aires and the impeccable eateries we’ve experienced, where the smell of grilled meats mingles with the wine that is splashing into glasses. Starting in Cahors and then showing off Mendoza, this pack is all you could want from malbec and then some!

Each case includes two bottles of the following:

Cahors may sound like a sneeze, but it’s actually the birthplace of malbec, in the south-west of France. While we’re probably more familiar with Mendozan malbecs these days - the style has quite rightly taken the world by storm for it’s plush, fruit-driven power - the Cahors contingent still make a very strong case for going back to the Old World every once in a while. This has seen lashings of new oak, giving it a robust suit of armour that makes it more than a match for those New World battle-axes. But under the facade lies delicate complexity that you won’t find in Argentina. Think dark florals, lifted liquorice notes, black tea, spices and Mediterranean herbs. The tannins are present but steady, and the acidity lifts the weighty palate with a lick of balsamic tang. Put it down in a cellar and forget about it if you like. It won’t hold it against you.

Single Vineyard

Sourced from the Fazzio vineyard for this wine comes from more recent plantings on the land. Half of the wine spends time in second use French oak with the remaining portion resting in tank to preserve the brightness of the fruit. The nose is vibrant and bursting with cherries and plums before giving way to more floral notes such as violets and roses. The palate carries both chocolate and vanilla, along with a nice spicy complexity and bold tannin structure.

Old Vine

Not too far outside of the CBD of Mendoza is an area called Luján de Cuyo. Within Luján de Cuyo lies Vistalba, one of the best places to grow old vine malbec in the entire world. Much of it is nearly dry-grown with the only irrigation coming in fortnightly releases of water from the nearby Mendoza River. It gets so hot and dry there that every drop matters. These old vines and extreme growing conditions provide grapes of unparalleled concentration. In the right hands, like those of Argentine Winemaker of the Year Hervé Fabre, the resulting wines are spellbinding. This one is 100% malbec and completely hand-harvested. 60% of the juice sees 12 months in French oak. This allows for some nice tannic structure without overpowering the bright fruit so indicative of Mendoza malbec. In the glass, you’ll find cherries, spices, vanilla, chocolate and sweet silky tannins. What a treat!

Argentine Red Winemaker of the Year 2017

What’s a Port grape doing in a wine like this? I’ll tell you what. It’s giving malbec an added lift (as if it needed it) so the aromatics are stratospheric. Touriga is a lifted variety anyway, and its role as a blending component is generally to boost aroma, add a bit of spice and pepper, along with some round, chunky tannins. Given Mendoza malbec’s propensity for full mid-palate purple fruit smoothness, these two dance very well together. Decanter was so impressed, they adorned it in platinum. 45 years of vine age on the malbec and careful hand-selection have helped propel this wine to these heights (the actual vineyard altitude helps too, obviously). This wine’s high in so many ways. Elevate your wine drinking, and reset your new normal. You can thank us later.

New to the 'Fo
Argentine Import

If you follow the Argentine wine scene at all, you’ll know the name Catena. Laura Catena is the fourth generation of the family to grow malbec and La Posta is one of her side projects. So we’re already starting with wine royalty here. This is a blend of fruit from several of Laura’s vineyards, working towards a stylish, bright and fresh malbec that shows off what Mendoza can produce. It’s full of cherry, chocolate and spice, but the tannins are quite soft, hinting at a wine that’s ready to drink now.
