Winemaker Notes

The 2017 Finca La Celia Pioneer Malbec is an attractive wine with aromas of fresh and ripe fruit, in perfect harmony with the delicacy of the violets and oak aging notes. Very good attack on the palate, with fruity concentration, typical of Malbec, palate medium firm but at the same time elegant. It is an ideal Malbec to drink with the Argetine roast beef with typical “empanadas”.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 90
James Suckling

This is quite a ripe expression with a wealth of plums and dark berries on offer, as well as an essence-like thread of plum conserve on the palate. Soft tannins.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Similar to the Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Pioneer Malbec is varietal, elegant and balanced, with fruit notes and nicely integrated oak undertones. There are notes of red fruit and some fresh herbal tones. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and very good balance.

Founded 130 years ago, La Celia is the oldest winery in the Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina.

It was the first winery in the region to plant the Malbec variety, which is currently the country’s signature variety around the world.

Eugenio Bustos, founder of La Celia, had received Malbec vines in a trade for the finest horse. And was the first to plant the variety –originally from France– in the Uco Valley.   

As a result, Finca La Celia was born in 1890, named in honor of his daughter. Today, the tradition lives on in our wines which are the expression of a terroir that is unique to the world.

Mendoza, Argentina

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
