  • Catena Zapata Adrianna Riverstones Malbec 2013 750ml This cuvee takes its name from a small parcel of the Adrianna Vineyard that is completely covered with oval white stones and was the site of an ancient riverbed. The abundant stones provide optimal drainage and extreme temperatures. They absorb heat and moderate the nights, but also function like ice cubes after a very cold night. Stony soil Malbecs tend to be extremely aromatic, rich and luxurious, just like the River Stones Malbec from Adrianna. This wine can be enjoyed young or aged for decades.

  • Catena Zapata Nicasia Malbec 2013 750ml Winemaker Notes Catena Zapata Nicasia Vineyard Malbec is a dark violet Malbec. Ripe black-and-red currant, raspberries and an elegant touch of french oak are some of the aromas that we can appreciate from this special malbec from one of the Catena´s highest family vineyards. Very complex and expressive palate, with a creamy violet flavor witih ripe blueberries, cassis, vanilla and spicecake. Pairs well with roasted veal, shiitake mushrooms, and beef tenderloin. The 2013 Malbec Catena Zapata Nicasia Vineyard is produced with grapes from the vineyard that names it--a vineyard planted in 1997 in the Altamira zone of Valle de Uco. It's mostly Malbec with some 4% Cabernet Franc, but the two grapes fermented together. It has less Cabernet Franc than other years because 2013 was fresh enough that just that pinch provided enough of the character they are looking for. They call this "the most Malbec of our Malbecs" and it has the textbook aromas of violets and red berries with perfectly integrated oak. The palate is also elegant and fresh and showcases the telltale round tannins of Malbec. This is truly outstanding.

  • Clearview Estate Endeavour Chardonnay 2013 750ml "Full, light golden-yellow colour, a little lighter edged. This has a very full, rich, open and bold nose of well-concentrated and densely packed aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits with powerful, exotic, nutty and toasty new oak. The fruit unfolds complex mealy, savoury detail along with flinty and smoky elements with aeration, the oak a focus of the bouquet. Full-bodied, the palate has mouthfilling and bold flavours of rich, ripe stonefruit and citrus fruits, forming a concentrated heart. The fruit is complemented by considerable toasty, smoky and spicy oak flavours. The palate has a degree of tightness and restraint, with the richness in balance. There is underlying alcoholic power and drive, carrying the creamy, nutty flavours and complex array of detailed nuances along with good acid liveliness and energy, to a very long, strong finish. This is a very powerful Chardonnay with considerable new oak presence and underlying complexities, the wine balanced in richness and structure, with excellent energy and drive."
