Combining the expertise of Bordeaux’s Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and world renowned Nicolás Catena, this is one of Argentina’s finest Malbecs. Using grapes from two regions and with no oak, it’s silky with intense black fruit and violet aromas.

"Dark berry and green tea undertones. Medium-to-full body, firm and silky tannins, a flavorful finish"
James Suckling 91 Points
Aruma 2017 is a silky, elegant Malbec. It brings together small batches of wines using tiny parcels of premium grapes from Agrelo and Altamira. In doing so it symbolises the union between its co-creators, ‘Decanter Man of the Year’ Nicolás Catena, whose wines are “beacons for quality in Argentina” (Spurrier), and the Rothschilds of Bordeaux, “synonymous with wealth, prestige, history, respect and remarkable wines” (Parker). Hand harvested, high grown, old vine grapes provide the wine’s outstanding fruit quality, while, for this vintage, there was no barrel ageing. With a new president in charge, Jean-Guillaume Prats, the aim was to create a wine with purer fruit and elegance. Decant and serve with a rib-eye steak, roast beef or venison.
