Catena Zapata Wines

Nicolás Catena Zapata – The pinnacle of Nicolás Catena Zapata’s vision – A South American Wine that stands with the best in the world. A Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon blend that brings back the blend that gave rise to the first growths classified in 1855 which were made up primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. The 1997 Nicolás Catena Zapata was tasted along with Solaia 1997, Latour 1997, Caymus Special Selection 1997 and Opus One 1997, in the US and London and it came 1st or 2nd in every tasting.

Estiba Reservada – The Catena Zapata family has identified the best quality lots within the vineyards of the family. The cultivation and manual care of the said lots has to identify the plants that, consistently, produce the best fruit. These plants are marked in the vineyard with a red ribbon, which indicates the special care that must be paid to the same harvested separately, at different times, the "Zapata" plants make up the origin of the wine Catena Zapata Estiba Reservada.

Malbec Argentino - This wine represents more than a single vintage. It reflects a family’s century-long journey to produce an Argentine Malbec that can stand with the great wines of the world. Malbec Argentino is a blend of Catena Zapata’s historic Malbec vineyards, Adrianna and Nicasia. The wine is made from a meticulous vine selection within the best, historic rows of these family estate vineyards.

Nicola Catena - Un homenaje al fundador de Bodega Catena Zapata. "Cuentan que mi Bisabuelo Nicola prefería la Bonarda mientras su hijo mayor, mi Abuelo Domingo Vicente, se inclinaba por el Malbec. Hoy sus Bisnietos hemos descubierto una excepcional parcela de Bonarda en el antiguo viñedo La Vendimia que hace muy difícil dirimir esa controversia." Dr. Nicolás Catena Zapata.
