Review

Since 1994, Catena Alta wines have been the premium range from Nicolás Catena and his daughter Laura - limited production wines, with even greater care taken and a second rigorous selection in the winery. These are definitely the highest quality wines, ready for drinking from the third year after harvesting and which age marvellously well over 10 and up to 20 years, just like the great Bordeaux. As regards this vintage, it is perfectly able to be drunk and enjoyed during the next 6 to 7 years, with complexity increasing over 12 more years. These wines have been aged for 18 months in new (60%) and semi-new French oak barrels.

Qué delicia de Malbec

En nariz nos deleita con aromas a mermelada de moras, apuntes especiados de pimienta negra, algo de vainilla y notas amaderadas. En boca es contundente, buen ataque, alta acidez y taninos a medio pulir. Retronasal afrutado y con recuerdos a roble y tostados de la barrica. Persistencia de casi 3 minutos. Muy rico. Al paso por la boca, resulta potente y carnoso, con taninos muy domados aunque ligeramente secos, y de nuevo gran presencia de detalles de la pimienta Fase final larga con la fruta con los detalles de la madera presentes.

Muy recomendable

He tenido el placer de poder tomar in situ, bastantes productos de Mendoza. Este malbec es muy recomendable. Poder tomar un vino de Mendoza sin alteraciones en nuestro país me ha parecido genial

Bodega Catena Zapata

In keeping with family tradition, Nicolás Catena Zapata is now the third generation to run the winery and can count on daughter Laura to follow in his footsteps. They have been able to make the most of terroir best described as poor, yet exceptional, holding to the firm belief that these particular lands possess hidden qualities, excellent for grape-growing. The wine-making philosophy of Nicolás Catena lies in the art of blending fruit from different vineyards. Despite the ...
