Alamos wines come from the highly respected Catena family of Argentina. Full flavoured with loads of dark fruits, hints of chocolate and a smattering of spice. Rich and soft yet still showing plenty of power, this is a good mouthful of Malbec. Perfect for these cold nights.


Winery Notes (2016 Vintage)
"Nicola Catena planted his first Malbec vineyard in Mendoza in 1902 and today the estate is run by Nicholas Catena and his daughter Laura. Malbec continues to be the estates focus and the winerie's pristine vineyards lie at the base of the Andes on soils of sand, lime and stone at altitudes between 920 and 1120 metres above sea level. Over the last 20 years, the fastidious vineyard work of Nicholas and Laura has paid dividends and Catena Zapata is now one of Argentina's most famous estates. Lush, beautifully created wines are what you can expect from Catena Zapata.

The Alamos Malbec has a dark purple colour with violet highlights. The nose offers bright black berry aromas with light floral notes and a touch of toast. The mouth-feel is full and rich, with ripe, concentrated cassis and black raspberry fruit interwoven with a touch of chocolate and sweet spice from light oak aging. The finish shows ripe, silky tannins."

"A medium-bodied red with firm tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Really intense and flavourful. Lovely balance and finesse. One of the best deals out there. Drink now."
