We are delighted to offer the latest release of Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino. As usual, the 2019 is a blend of fruit from their 90-year-old Angelica and 20-year-old Nicasia vineyard. With its distinctive label (first used on the 2015 vintage), it is packed in cases of 4 x 75cl in wood. We also have a limited allocation of magnums on offer.
This wine represents more than a single vintage. It reflects a family's century-long journey to produce an Argentine Malbec that can stand with the great wines of the world. Malbec Argentino is a blend of Catena Zapata's historic Malbec vineyards, Adrianna and Nicasia. The wine is made from a meticulous vine selection within the best, historic rows of these family estate vineyards.

16 Mar, 2021 – This is made from over 100-year-old vineyards and offers blackberries with blue fruit and dark chocolate. Shows bark and black truffle undertones, too. Tight and more focused than in past vintages. The quality of the tannins is more precise and fine. Blackberries and black truffles at the end. Drink or hold.

It feels like there was a big change in the 2019 Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino, a year with a vibrant palate and very clean and focused aromas and flavors. They fine-tuned the irrigation and viticulture, and that seems to have increased the precision of the wine. They also did a selection and left the grapes from the borders of the vineyard, which were affected by the paths and other stuff. It's still a little more voluptuous than the wines from Gualtallary, as this mixes grapes from Angélica (Lunlunta) and Nicasia (Altamira). It's nicely textured and tasty, medium-bodied and with a vibrant finish. 25,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2020. - Luis Gutiérrez, 31st Mar 2021, End of March 2021, The Wine Advocate
