Padrillos Malbec is produced with 100% Malbec grapes from Mendoza, Argentina. A young wine with a fresh style, it is ideal to drink while young and robust. Violet floral aromas, and flavors of plums, cherries, dried berries, and an lingering
aftertaste of white peppercorn.
Founded by Ernesto Catena, a fourth-generation winemaker of Italian descent, Padrillos wines are inspired by Ernesto’s passion for horses. Ernesto has more than 30 retired polo ponies from his own stud farm that now enjoy life on his vineyards in Mendoza. Padrillos (stallions) expresses the wild spirit of Argentina’s true varietals. Having spent a part of his life working as a designer and being a fervent student of the Renaissance humanism, Ernesto sees it as his mission to transform everything in his wine world into art, from growing the grapes to making wine to selling it.
