Graffigna Centenario Malbec

100% Malbec

San Juan, Argentina


Winemaker Notes

Established in 1870, GRAFFIGNA has the honor of being the oldest winery in San Juan and the second oldest winery in Argentina. The Graffigna Centenario Malbec has its origin in San Juan in Pedernal Valley located at 4.593 ft above sea level and Tulúm Valley located at 2.066 ft above sea level. This remote, unspoiled area is home to a highly unique terroir. San Juan enjoys a dry climate and an average of 310 days of sunshine per year. Runoff streams originating in the Andes Mountains flow through the area, providing ample water for irrigation. These ideal conditions grant the grapes optimal ripeness, with softer tannins and exceptional concentration. Because the Zonda wind that blows through San Juan helps prevent disease and mildew rot, fewer pesticides and chemicals are used, resulting in superior fruit quality. The Graffigna Centenario range conveys the true expression of each variety, with deep aromas, flavors and great concentration. 

WineChump Notes

Although many of the Malbec wines we’ve been happy with are from the 2009 vintage (such as Fabre Montmayou “Pretty” Malbec), the Graffigna 2010 from San Juan has great promise. Definitely drinkable today, but I can’t wait to see how the other two bottles are after another year.

“Graffigna draws from Old World traditions, while also embodying New World passion,
all of which is contained in the vivid flavors from the distinct terroir of San Juan.”
— Victor Marcantoni Graffigna, Winery Director
