Catena, a family-run winery, offers excellent wines made from a skilful combination of grapes from different vineyards. To sign these special bottles are Laura Catena, current representative of four generations of winemakers, and Alejandro Vigil, chief enologist of Catena Zapata. The wines from this winery are ready to be tasted the moment they enter the market and are still appreciated many years later. For decades, in fact, Catena Zapata has been investing in the study of the microclimatic conditions at high altitudes of the Mendoza area, where its historic vineyards are located. Combined harmoniously, the Malbec grapes harvested in the different vineyards give life to a wine with a unique character, balanced and rich in structure, which fully expresses the typicality of the grape. The wide olfactory bouquet and the exuberance to the taste are the mirror of the varied composition of the soils and of the multitude of microclimates and altitudes in which the grapes grow.
This is an incredibly fresh and elegant, perfectly balanced wine with well-integrated wood and precise flavours. Catena Malbec is young, floral, and juicy, a pure single-variety wine with all the typicity of its grapes and the refined austerity of an honest wine. The Malbec grapes give it revealing aromas and a smooth velvety texture – all neatly rounded up with a long, dry and pleasant finish.
