Review

The 'Appellation' wine range from Bodegas Catena Zapata faithfully replicates the concept of Burgundy's village wine. Just as happens in France, this wine collection has its main focus on the terroir, which means the region's origin becomes much more important than the grape variety or the ageing. The wines are named after historic vineyards, small in size, such as Lunlunta, Agrelo and La Consulta.

Featuring among them is this Catena Paraje Altamira Malbec, a red made solely from the grapes of the location, a magical spot with chalky soils capable of producing wines which have fantastic acidity and impressive minerality.

In every one of the little over 9,000 bottles of Catena Paraje Altamira Malbec there's a wine of an intense purple colour and a concentrated nose of ripe woodland fruits, blue flowers and orange peel. Its palate is complex and concentrated, with very well integrated tannins and the limestone offering all its elegance. Complementing its silky feel, there are hints of fine spices and cocoa that culminate in an exceptionally long, dry and polished finish, with a refined mineral touch.

You will be surprised for the price

If you are looking for higher than average quality Malbec you certainly need to try this one. But don’t wait too long because limited quantity and at almost same price as the normal Catena. Having drunk both over last months, the Paraje is clearly a step higher in complexity with good mineral aftertaste and very balanced, not sweet. 2018 is an excellent year in Argentina.

Il mio primo malbec

La prima volta che assaggio questo vino e l’ho apprezzato molto, un vino molto equilibrato, i commensali si sono spinti a dire che era il miglior vino che abbiano mai bevuto. Io non mi azzardo, spero di assaggirne sempre più buoni, ma ho molto apprezzaro questo malbec

Un excelente vino, suave al paladar con delicioso retrogusto

Este vino de altura tiene muchas cualidades organolépticas. Suave olor, Hay que dejar que tome un poco el aire (15 minutos aprox.) y es suave al entrar y deja un retrogusto muy rico. Muy recomendable.

Muy buen vino

Color púrpura. En nariz frutos rojos y pimienta. En boca, roble y fruta negra, taninos bien integrados, seco, intenso, fino y elegante. Muy buen vino.
