Wine Advocate Review
The pale and delicious 2019 Appellation Lunlunta Malbec is expressive and floral and really thriving in this cool vintage. This is fresh and ethereal, a lot fresher than the traditional Malbecs from the zone. It's juicy with velvety tannins and vibrant acidity. 330,000 bottles produced. Volumes have grown in this range but the quality remains. The Appellation range delivers excellent value and would be my go-to range for casual quality drinking at incredible prices. Drink 2021-2025.
Wine Tasting Notes
The Catena Zapata Appellation Lunlunta Malbec shows a deep violet color with purple reflections. The nose offers concentrated aromas of ripe red and dark fruits with traces of vanilla and mocha. The mouthfeel is rich and concentrated, with blueberries and blackberries notes and a touch of leather and cinnamon. The finish presents well integrated supple tannins with a flinty minerality that gives the wine exceptional length.
The Catena Zapata Appellation Lunlunta Malbec perfectly pairs with smoked meats and cheeses and equally well with braises, roasts or grilled meats and fowl. Perfect for a light dinner or a substantial meal, it is an extremely versatile wine that can be enjoyed with or without food.
