A very unusual fresh and aromatic Torrontes with lashings of tropical fruit and a clean dry finish. Almost clear in colour, with a delicate grape and petal perfume, this is the ultimate summer sipper for the garden.Hints of jasmine and honeysuckle over co
Bodega Catena Zapata
Nicolás Catena Zapata is the quiet revolution in the Catena family history book. He has charted the family's path to the new frontier of winemaking, drawing on lessons learned from the land and in the classroom, then applying his education to dare to challenge the conventional wisdom.
Nicola Catena, Nicolás Catena Zapata's grandfather, sailed from Italy to Argentina in 1898, leaving behind his famine-stricken European homeland for a land of plenty and opportunity. It is family lore that Nicola, a tireless optimist, celebrated his new life each morning by devouring a piece of virtually raw steak for breakfast. In the gin-clear air and rolling hills of Mendoza, Argentina, he firmly believed he had found the promised land. In 1902, Nicola planted his first Malbec vineyard in Mendoza. Although Malbec had been a blending grape in Bordeaux, Nicola suspected it would find its hidden splendour in the Argentine Andes. It was a hunch that would not fully flower until nearly a century later.
Domingo, Nicola's eldest son, inherited his father's dream and took the family winery to the next level, building the Catena business to become one of the largest vineyard holders in Mendoza. Like his father before him, Domingo Catena fiercely believed that Argentine Malbec could make a wine as worthy as any first-growth Bordeaux.
