4 /5

Sein Geheimnis liegt in der Auswahl erstklassiger Parzellen einer ganzen Reihe von Weinbergen. Vereint ergeben sie einen Malbec von königlichem Kaliber, der 18 Monate in 70% neuen französischen Barriques reifte. Die frische Frucht, das sehr feine Tannin und die atemberaubende Struktur sprechen Bände

Bodega Catena Zapata wordt gezien als het vlaggeschip van de wijnhuizen in Argentinië. De uitspraak van Robert Parker zegt veel: 'when all is said and done, Catena Zapata is the Argentina winery of reference, the standard of excellence'  De wijn biedt een prachtig, puur bloemenboeket met rijpe granaatappel en wilde aardbei doordrenkt met prachtige mineraliteit. De 2014 Alta Malbec wijn heeft 93/100 punten gekregen en we citeren uit de Wine-advocate: "I was truly impressed by the Catena Alta Malbec It has a really tasty and lengthy finish. A triumph over the vintage"

I took a nip from my friend's glass.
Such a gorgeous cherry red. Predominant coffee and wood aromas. Slightly peculiar, very good.
A good red to finish the meal properly.
