Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec

Deep violet colour. Aromas of ripe, red, dark fruit, joined by violet and lavender notes, with traces of vanilla and mocha. A rich, concentrated mouthfeel is highlighted by blue and black berries with a touch of sweet spice and leather. The wine finishes with bright acidity, well-integrated and silky tannins, and flinty minerality.

The description above is right on and this wine is every bit as spectacular as you'd expect from an Argentine Malbec and Catena Zapata. It was complemented by our fabulous grilled steaks. There`s just no going wrong with this one especially if you already love Malbec.
