Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino

The grapes for the Malbec Catena Zapata come from a meticulous selection of the best lots of the family vineyards. these vineyards are cultivated manually, so that they produce very low yields. The wine is aged for 24 months in new French oak. This wine is made in very little quantities.

This exquisite wine has a deep and intensive violet color. Its aroma remits to cassis, mocha, clove and marked earthy notes.

A Perfect Wine

LUIGI BOSCA – Malbec Reserve

Luigi Bosca Malbec is an intense purple colour wine, with distinct aromas of ripe red fruits, spices and black pepper. The intensity of the entry in the mouth is complemented with the softness and sweetness of tannins, respecting the characteristics of the grape variety in Argentina. A pure, full-bodied, well-structured red wine with character and all the juiciness typical of this variety. A long lingering and elegant finish.

Delicious!

Michel Rolland is an influential Bordeaux-based oenologist, with hundreds of clients across 13 countries and influencing wine style around the world. He works with serious producers in just about every major wine-making region on the globe, including Argentina.

In 1988, Dany and Michel Rolland were asked to be consultants to one of the oldest families in the valley of Calchaqui. There they discovered Cafayate, a true paradise for viticulture in the north-west of Argentina and they fell in love with the country, its culture, traditions and its people.

Calchaqui Valley.

These French wine consultants were convinced that unique, outstanding wines could be produced in this mountain region of the Andes foothills. Dany and Michel decided to put all their passion and savoir-faire to work with their Argentinean friends to produce the wine called Yacochuya.

Yacochuya is a 100% Malbec wine that is aged 18 to 24 months in new French oak barrels.

-Color: deep garnet-red

-Nose: meaty, toasted oak, leather with hints of dried currant

-Palate: well crafted, great balance in the aromatic array which unwinds harmoniously right up to the finish, then the tannis appear before giving way to liquorice aromas that linger on a refreshing finish.

Have you try this wine before? I suggest you to pair Yacochuya with roasted lamb, or pasta with mushroom sausage.

Clos de los Siete – Michel Rolland

closdelossiete1

“Clos de los Siete” is a wine project conceived in 1998 by renown French winemakers Michel Rolland and Jean-Michel Arcaute. The idea was to produce a wine in the then largely untapped landscape of Tunuyan valley, south of Mendoza, Argentina. The name derives from the original seven wine industry investors who were first attached to the project. Their mission was to make wines in Argentina that rival some of the best in the world, without the use of fertilizers, pesticides and with traditional, time-tested methods. Since then, a collective of wine-making estates bearing the “Clos de los Siete” name have emerged and gained prominence.

Opaque purple-colored, the wine coats the glass while offering up a superb bouquet of toasty oak, violets, mineral, black currant, blueberry, and black cherry. This is followed by a layered wine with gobs of ripe fruit, a plush texture, outstanding balance.
