Catena Apellation Lunlunta Malbec
Regular price £22.00
This wine boasts ripe red cherry aromas and flavors, with a subtle hint of peppery lavender and floral cinnamon. The palate is full-bodied and robust, with notes of chocolate, licorice, and black cherry. The tannins are oaky and toasty, providing a crisp structure. The acidity is nicely balanced, with a lingering smooth finish that features hints of dried prunes and tart cranberry. This wine is food-friendly and pairs perfect with steak/empanadas.
Family vintners for over 100 years, the Catenas are recognized for their pioneering role in high-altitude viticulture and in leading Argentina’s Malbec revolution. Lunlunta is an idyllic district of small orchards and tree-lined country roads, well known for its ancient Malbec vines and silty-clay soils.
