Luca Old Vine Malbec 2020
- Rich, full-bodied
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 Luca is her artisan brand. So we’re already starting with wine royalty here. Throw in some buzzworthy stats like 50-year old vines and vineyards at over 1000 metres above sea level, and you’re onto something exciting.
Deep in colour and loaded with spice and fruit, this malbec is already drinking well. You’ll find black and red cherries, chocolate and espresso on the palate, along with quite lively acidity and a tannin structure that’ll allow it to age well for a few more years. With a family history as interwoven with malbec as that of the Catena’s, you’d expect nothing less.
“Baked blueberries, dark cherries, toasted hazelnuts, vanilla, tea leaves and mocha on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, velvety tannins. Creamy and polished. Compact and plush, yet fresh and vibrant at the finish.”
Full price $80.00 from the producer.

Mendoza is a beautiful region within Argentina that is known for their powerful Malbecs, although the region has begun to branch out to prove that they're not a one grape wonder. Being responsible for nearly 80% of the total production, the region produces Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah, Tempranillo, Chenin and various other grapes. Food focused wines that will satisfy any curious wine drinker.
