CATENA CATENA - Zapata Malbec Nicasia - 2014

CATENA Zapata Malbec Nicasia 2014

See the wine detail page

94 Points

Part of the comparatively new Paraje Altamira sub-zone, Nicasia was planted in 2000. The resulting wine sees 50% whole bunches and is intensely perfumed, bright and refreshing, showing the sheer class of the appellation and some underlying grip.
