Family vintners for over 100 years, the Catenas are recognized internationally for their pioneering role in high-altitude viticulture and in leading Argentina’s Malbec revolution. In the 1950s, Don Domingo began sourcing Malbec from the historic vineyards in of Vista Flores in Tunuyán. Domingo prized the region’s Malbec above all others from its dark color and structured tannins. Catena Malbec Appellation Vista Flores is a wine with a pure expression of this unique terroir. 30-year-old vines give red and black fresh fruits flavors, sweet texture and character. Cold nights lend bright, crisp acidity and the intense sunshine give explosive floral aromatics and concentrated structure.
The Catena Malbec Appellation Vista Flores shows a dark violet color with black reflections. The nose offers ripe, concentrated dark and red fruit aromas with delicate floral notes of lavender and violet, and mocha. The mouthfeel is rich and full with notes of sweet spice and a touch of leather. The finish presents soft, well-integrated tannins with bright, crisp acidity that gives the wine exceptional length.
Catena Malbec Appellation Vista Flores is an ideal pairing to grilled steaks and would be a wonderful complement hearty meat dishes with lamb and pork.
