From the Producer
The 2015 Catena Alta Malbec presents a deep violet color, with blue reflections. The nose is elegant and complex, offers ripe red and black berry fruits aromas with notes of flowers as violet and lavander, leather and a touch of spices and vanilla flavors. The mouthfeel is full and rich, with sweet tanins and smooth structure. The mid palate offers different layers as blackberries and black currant fruit flavors with hints of licorice notes, vanilla and black pepper. The lengthy finish shows wonderful minerality, with finely grained tannins and lively acidity.
Mendoza is Argentina's largest wine region, and produces a majority of the Argentine wines on the market. Much of the region lies in the foothills of the Andes mountains, and as result Mendoza vineyards are typically located at higher altitudes than most. Mendoza is the epicenter of the Malbec craze that has taken the wine world by storm in recent years, but also produces great examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and other grapes.
Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.
Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
