SKU: 32632 Categories: ,


The 2020 Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino follows the path of the 2019, harvested early and fermented with 100% full clusters in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak vats and some barrels for 12 to 18 months. It's juicy, powerful and with abundant tannins and a slight earthiness. It's a little more voluptuous and mixes grapes from Angélica (Lunlunta) and some from Nicasia (Altamira).

Winemaking Approach





Producer Information: Catena

Four generations of the Catena family have farmed the vineyards of Mendoza, ever since Italianfounder Nicola Catena planted his first Malbec vines in 1902.

Robert Parker’s 2005 book about the 100 “Greatest World Wine Estates” featured only one winery from South America. Catena Zapata. Parker wrote. “Argentina’s greatest visionary is Nicolás Catena Zapata, and his crusade for high-altitude vineyards and conservative viticultural practices has resulted in one after another breakthrough wines that have pushed Argentina to the forefront of the modern winemaking revolution.”

Joined by his daughter Dr. Laura Catena in 1995, the father-daughter team’s vision is to elevate Argentine wine for another 200 years through the study of high-altitude terroir and the preservation of ungrafted Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon massale selections. In 2018 Catena Zapata joined La Place with two wines. Nicolás Catena Zapata, the winery’s top Cabernet Sauvignon blend, and Adrianna Vineyard Mundus Bacillus Terrae, the winery’s top Malbec cru.
