Put simply, Catena Zapata put premium Malbec on the map. Run by Nicolás Catena, who was the first South American to win 'Decanter Man of the Year', its high altitude wines are famed for their finesse.
Pumping with black fruits, violets, a dusting of black pepper and soft tannins, the top Malbec of 2018 is an exquisite expression of what Mendoza can produce.
The delicious secret behind this Malbec blend is Touriga Nacional. In this, it adds a colossal burst of red-fruit flavour. It's delicious.
Harmonious and smooth, with racy notes of violet and graphite accenting the backbone of plum and currant fruit, followed by a finish reminiscent of dry cherries, raisins and prunes.
A generous nose of warm plum-pudding-like fruit, lifted by soft vanilla and flower petal notes. The tannins are muscular, yet smooth and voluptuous. Perfect with beef.
