Catena Fortuna Terrae Malbec 2019
Fortuna Terrae means luck of the land in Latin, which relates to the incredible parcel of land where the grapes are grown. The deep loamy soils in this part of the vineyard are home to many varieties of native grasses which prevent erosion and attract insects, singing birds and mountain foxes. Because of the freshness imparted by the deep soils and high altitude, the wines of Fortuna Terrae have optimal acidity and delicate flower aromas. The beauty of all that lovely Argentinian sunshine means that young wines will be approachable from around 3 years, so the 2019 will be brimming with ripe, primary fruits. If you can hold out, this wine has decades of potential and would be a great red for the cellar.
