2010 Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard Malbec, Tupungato
The untouchable heights of the Adrianna vineyard – Mendoza’s highest at an astonishing 5,000ft – is a marvel in Malbec production. Dense cherries and plums, the fruit purity is stunning and will last an age. Mineral concentration on the palate, dense but plenty of lift and expressive notes; lots of spice, pepper, the cool acidity is impressive. Sourced from 180 different rows of vines according to fruit quality, this is Malbec par excellence.
