Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino 2018

Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino 2018

$175.00

I had two very good vintages to compare of the Malbec Argentino, of which the 2018 Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino feels a tad riper than the 2019. There is a little more of Angelica in this blend, as it mixes grapes from different places in Mendoza that fermented with long macerations and some 30% full clusters and matured in 500-liter oak barrels.

I had two very good vintages to compare of the Malbec Argentino, of which the 2018 Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino feels a tad riper than the 2019. There is a little more of Angelica in this blend, as it mixes grapes from different places in Mendoza that fermented with long macerations and some 30% full clusters and matured in 500-liter oak barrels. Despite everything, it has contained ripeness, a medium to full body with moderate alcohol and good freshness. This is a little more opulent than the wines from Gualtallary, a little more powerful. 24,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2019.

This is a really contrastive, rich and energetic malbec with crushed berries, as well as peaches and orange peel. Full body and soft tannins, yet always fresh and vivid. A little semillon in this from the blend plantings. Drink or hold.
