About this winery

At heart, Catena is a story about family. Family who poured their lives, passion and spirit into transforming scrub-laden desert into some of the most beautiful and unique vineyards in the world. Family that passed their knowledge from generation to generation, blending collective memory with state-of-the-art science from the new world of viticulture. Family who, through risk-taking, faith and a little luck, transformed their treasured Mendoza terroir into the fountainhead of the award-winning...

January 2022 (Vintage 2019)

According to the winemaker Alejandro Vigil, the name Mundus Bacillus comes from the bacterial world that exists in that small 1.4-hectare piece of vineyard, Lot 3 of the Adrianna Vineyard, 1,400 meters above sea level in the north of the Uco Valley. The symbiosis of that molecular world with the roots in a soil with a strong calcareous component yields a wine with a firm texture, saline acidity, and chalky tannins. But there's also the cold year (in the context of Uco) and the mountain climate to consider, which have transformed the flavors here, leaving a sensation of intense red fruits in what may be the reddest and freshest Mundus that we have ever tasted, perhaps similar to that of 2016.

April 2021 (Vintage 2019)

Lots of black fruit with black truffles and dried flowers. Moss and earth, too. Full-bodied and earthy on the palate with blackberry and black earth. Firm, tight finish with juicy fruit at the end. Needs three or four years to open. Drink after 2024.

August 2022 (Vintage 2019)

Sweet, joyful and full of life, this is immediately really quite vibrant on the palate, the rich, concentrated blackcurrants and black cherries given lift by high acidity and a touch of sweetness as well as saltiness that gives such a brilliant combination of flavours. Complex and confident. I like the styling here, there are hints of bitterness and some spiced edges that give nuance, still quite youthful. Great potential. Consistent winemaking and quality.
