Enotria is very pleased to introduce a new Argentine producer to our portfolio.
Bodega Cuarto Dominio is run by Javier Catena, fourth generation member of the family that has done so much to promote quality wine in Argentina.
In 2006 Javier’s father Jorge Catena sold his shares in the family winery and kept the vineyards he considered the finest in order to pursue a smaller wine project. Cuarto Dominio is the result.
Enotria will be launching 4 wines from their stable; all Malbec-based and all blended with a small percentage of a very unique Cabernet Franc from the family vineyard in La Consulta, Uco Valley.
Cuarto Dominio, the top wine, comes from two small and unique blocks totalling just over 3 hectares in the San Carlos vineyard, at 900 metres above sea level.
Enotria’s buyer for Argentina, Harriet Kininmonth, says
“Argentina is a vibrant, fast-growing category for us. We looked at around 40 different wines with a panel of tasters to identify the most suitable addition to the range. Cuarto Dominio won on both price and quality at all levels. It’s great to be supporting a member of the Catena dynasty and we look forward to a successful partnership together. "
Jorge Catena says
“My family has produced wines in Mendoza for over 110 years. As 4th generation and President of Bodega Cuarto Dominio I am honoured to be able to share my family’s passion and wines with the UK consumers. We couldn’t think of a better partner than Enotria to represent us in such a competitive and knowledgeable market.”
The wines will be officially launched to Enotria customers at our Annual Tasting on 26th February 2013.
