Notes about product

Catena Malbec Appellation Vista Flores is composed of 100% varietal wines blended from vineyards of Vista Flores district in Tunuyán. The result is a wine with a pure expression of a unique terroir. 30-year-old vines gives 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.

Tasting notes

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.

April 2021

A solid malbec with quite a firm, linear flow to it, with blackberry, black-tea and blueberry undertones. It’s medium-bodied with firm tannins and a fresh, racy finish. Delivers finesse at the end.
