Dolg opis

With its inaugural 1997 vintage, Nicolas Catena Zapata become the first luxury cuvee from Argentina to be exported around the world. The wine recreates the ''Original bordeaux Blend'' of the 18th and 19th Centuries, when Malbec dominated over Merlot and was in equal standing to Cabernet Sauvignon in the Medoc. Prephylloxeric Melbec and Cabernet Sauvignon massale selections of ungrafted vines give rise to the wine, opening a window to the past from the mountain vineyards of Mendoza, Argentina.

The harvest is done by hand, and some parcels are fermented as whole bunches to enhance tannic structure and freshness. The fermentation takes place in 500 liter oak barrels, concrete and stainless-steel tanks, at temperatures of 26-28°C for abaut 10-15 days. The post-fermentative maceration lasts between 5 and 10 days. The wine carries out its malolactic fermentation and is then aged in French oak barrels for 18 months.
