Peachy, apricot, honeysuckle but not in a sweet Gewurz-type way. Palate is lighter than the aroma would suggest and while similar flavours are present the palate is more limey, crisp and refreshing. Dry too. The acidity is the key here, forming the wine into a fine food wine. http://www.spittoon.biz/wine_matching_with_a_winter_sa.html

Intriguing wine. Pale-yellow color that is quite aromatic- strong floral with lemon, orange, and flinty notes. The taste is lighter than you’d expect from the intense aromatic nose. The palate, dominated by citrus, is dry, slightly salty, and yet refreshing. The wine is well-balanced, finishing with crisp acidity.

Citrus (lemon/lime/orange) nose with hints of citrus/floral. These all continue on the palate, with the floral notes dominating the others. Overall quite good and refreshing, although my bottle has a bit of a funky finish.

A tantalizing bouquet of orange blossom, fine herbs, and wood smoke gives way to touch of sweetness and a bitter if not altogether unpleasant finish. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=159)

The 2007 Torrontes is fragrant with an attractive perfume of spring flowers, honey, and tropical fruits. On the palate it is dry, crisp, fresh, and well balanced; meant for drinking over the next 12ndash;18 months. These are both excellent values.

The 2008 Nicolas Catena Zapata is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc that spent 24 months in 100% new French oak followed by 24 months in bottle prior to release.

Bright full ruby-red. Black fruits, violet, minerals and exotic oak on the nose.

Medium yellow. Lemon and anise on the nose. Fairly rich but dry and serious, with fruit overshadowed by licorice and saline notes. Slightly aggressive on the finish.

Jancis Robinson: Torrontes characteristically has a particularly exotic grapey aroma with something floral about it. This example is all that but it is so rich aromatically that it almost smells like toffee. However there is so much racy tingling acidity on the palate that it could happily be served with strongly flavoured salads and pasta dishes although I think it would probably be best as an aperitif. Made from Torrontes grapes ripened in the clear mountain air and the light sandy soils round the Andean holiday town of Cafayate this wine has a very healthy acid/pH balance and an alcohol level of only 12.7%

Nice and plump, with pink grapefruit, tangerine and persimmon notes and a rich, pure finish. A step up for the grape. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Nicolás Catena Zapata is made from a meticulous vine selection in the best lots of the Catena family’s estate vineyards. These Zapata vines are carefully hand tended and produce extremely low yields. The grapes are micro-fermented in new French oak barriques and the wine is then aged for 24 months in new French oak.

Tasting Notes:

Nicolas Catena Zapata 2008 has an intense dark violet color with bluish-black tones. Complex wine; Super-ripe aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate and licorice, enlivened by minerals, violet, pepper and herbs. Then penetrating, sharply delineated and impressively concentrated, with a serious backbone supporting its very fresh currant and mineral flavors; the vibrant, echoing finish suggests that this wine will have even more to say in a couple of years.
