Catena 'Argentino' Malbec
Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino blends grapes from Angelica Vineyard in Lunlunta and Nicasia Vineyard in Altamira. It's a classical Malbec that fermented in 225 and 500 liter rolling oak fermentors and matured in French barrique for 18 months. They have changed the image and also the blend for this wine, which is now all from old vines. The label shows the history of Malbec with four relevant women (including Madam Phylloxera!) from the 12th century to the rebirth in the 20th century.
TASTING NOTESA rock star bouquet of blueberries, blackcurrants, smoked earth, chocolate and tobacco leaf, with an almost Graves-like minerality and earthiness that develops with time in the glass. Ripe, full-bodied and plush on the palate, it nevertheless has density and depth, with notable tannins, moderate acidity and a great finish. It's a brilliant wine from this beautiful estate.
