    Winemaker Notes

    The Lulunta Vineyard was planted more than 60 years ago with a density of about 5,700 vines/ha. (2,300 vines/acres). The soil, of sand and shallow clay over a stony subsoil, allows for excellent drainage. Trellising is over three wires at a height of 1.75 meters. The results of ideal soil and climate condition together with meticulous pruning, irrigation and canopy management are low yields of small berries with extremely concentrate flavors and round velvety tannins.

    Tasting Notes: The first super-premium Argentine Malbec introduced into the international market, Catena Malbec has become a benchmark for the exceptional price to quality ratio which this most Argentine of grapes can offer. The 2000 vintage continues this legacy. Its dark, violet color; its explosive aromatics; its rich concentrated fruit flavors; and its soft, sweet tannins show the great potential of Argentine Malbec.

    Catena, Argentina
    Image of winery

    Bodega Catena Zapata is one of Argentina's high altitude Malbec pioneers. The Catena family began making wine in Mendoza in 1902. Nicolas Catena, third generation family vintner, was one of the first to see the potential of Mendoza's mountain vineyards for producing high quality Malbec. In 1994, he became the first Argentine to exprot a world-class bottling of Malbec under the Catena label. Nicolas is joined by his daughter, Dr. Laura Catena, in their relentless pursuit of world-class quality from the family's high altitude vineyards. Laura has done extensive work in introducing Malbec and other varietal plant selections, soil and climate analysis, and sustainable practices throughout Mendoza. Head winemaker, Alejandro Vigil, has been at Catena Zapata since 2002 and works with Laura and Nicolas to make wines that express the family's vineyards and palate.
