The crowning achievement of the estate in this year's release, it received a magnificent 98 points from Wine Advocate. Lovingly called by Luis Gutiérrez as "among the finest vintages for the Mundus Bacillus Terrae", the 2018 shows more defined characters than 2017. This wine is sourced from a 1.4ha limestone plot located at 1,450m. Rich in microorganisms, the allows grapes to ripen slowly, hence facilitates more flavour complexity.

About Catena Zapata

Nicolas Catena is the man known for revolutionizing Argentine wine in the 1980s, introducing the world to Malbec. A pioneer of high-altitude Malbec in Argentina, Catena Zapata was the first to venture into the wild and unknown vineyard area called Gualtallary in Mendoza. After more than 100 years of winemaking history, the family estate is now in the hands of Laura Catena.

 

Catena Zapatas' Wines

While some prefer the European style of Malbec from the Adrianna vineyard; others prefer the more powerful style from Nicasia. Then there are those who sit on the fence (or perhaps, prefer the balance) and enjoy the blend of both Adrianna and Nicasia vineyards, in the Argentino. 

 

The Nicolas Catena cuvée is named after the man himself who is probably more responsible than anyone else for the superb reputation the wines of Argentina enjoy in the fine wine world today. With its inaugural 1997 vintage, Nicolas Catena became the first luxury cuvée from Argentina to be exported around the world. The wine recreates the “Original Bordeaux Blend” of the 18th and 19th Centuries, when Malbec dominated over Merlot and was in equal standing to Cabernet Sauvignon in the Médoc.
