Catena Alta Malbec 2015 75cl

Price: 5,549/-

Catena Alta Malbec is an elegant Argentinian wine that shines a deep purple with delicate purple reflections. On the nose are aromas of freshly ground black berries, wild berried and red berries. This red wine is lush with a rich body and a smooth and silky texture. The mid palate offers sweet tannins and fruit flavors interwoven with hints of chocolate, black pepper and vanilla. It finishes with a beautiful minerality, finely grained tannins and a long reverberation.

Historic Rows

Catena Alta is an assemblage of historic rows within the Catena family Estate vineyards. The blend of these historic rows, like the marriage of sounds that create a symphony, yields a highly aromatic and elegant wine that speaks for the earth and the vines that have been tended by the Catenas for four generations. The Catena Alta wines can usually be drunk starting at three years after harvest and into and into the following one to two decades.

Vinification

Vineyard lots are harvested at different times to ensure optimal natural acidity and moderate alcohol levels. Whole berries are hand loaded into small format fermentation bins and 225-500 L barrels; lots from each vineyard are treated individually, fermentation and maceration last for 28-30 days; cold maceration. Wild yeasts. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrel; wine undergoes active battonage to protect it and drastically reduce the amount of SO2 needed. Aged for 18 months in French oak.
