Winemaker Notes

Septima Malbec is an intense red with purplish highlights. There are aromas of fresh cherries balanced with toast and vanilla, from aging in American oak, mixed with notes of strawberry jam in nice balance with reminiscence of rosemary, watermelon, pear and raspberry. Soft and elegant sweet tannins which remind of raspberry jam. Its aftertaste is fruity with a hint of smoky oak. Well-balanced with a lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

The 2011 Malbec has a simple nose of soy-tinged black fruit that has absorbed the American and French oak well. The palate is medium-bodied with touches of burnt toast and rosemary on the entry, coca-tinged tannins and a pleasing, smooth, harmonious finish.

Making stellar wine is the sole focus at Bodega Septima, a pristine winery situated in the acclaimed Mendoza winemaking district of Argentina.

Founded in 1999, the winery was the seventh (in Spanish “septima”) winery introduced by the Codorníu Group, known for its world-famous cava and still wines from Spain and Napa Valley. Imported exclusively by Aveníu Brands, Septima produces authentic wines that are modern, with a nod to tradition.

Known mainly for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albarino and [Verdejo] dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. [Rioja] is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha ([Grenache]), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. [Ribera del Duero] produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. [Priorat], a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena ([Carignan]) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. [Sherry], Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in [Jerez]. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.
