Bodega Catena Zapata is one of my absolute favorite producers. The Argentinian wine family makes the undoubtedly best wines in South America. No questions asked.
They specialize in wines made from high altitude vineyards and Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes dominate their world.
If you wanna check out their flagship wines, search for «Nicolas Catena Zapata», «Argentino Malbec» and «White Bones/White Stones».
While Catena produces these world class bottles, they also have a range of wines who delivers extremely high in the price/quality category. And our wine of the week is a new star here.
Paraje Altamira Malbec 2018 is a single vineyard wine, from the Altamira vineyard. It consists of 80% sand, 10% Clay and 10% Silt.
Ticking in at just 209kr, this is an enormous amount of quality wine at the price. It’s spicy, fruity, well structured, has soft tannins and will go excellent to many autumn and winter dishes. What more do you need?
