The Catena Appellation Lunlunta Malbec is an exceptional wine that showcases the unique characteristics of the Lunlunta appellation in Mendoza, Argentina. This Malbec offers a deep, ruby-red color with violet hues, indicating its youthfulness and vibrancy. On the nose, this wine presents an enticing bouquet of ripe blackberries, plums, and cherries, accompanied by subtle hints of vanilla and spice. These aromas are further enhanced by delicate floral notes, adding an elegant touch to the overall profile. The palate of the Catena Appellation Lunlunta Malbec is rich and full-bodied, with velvety tannins that provide a smooth and well-rounded mouthfeel. The flavors of dark fruits, such as blackberries and black cherries, dominate the palate, while nuances of cocoa, tobacco, and a touch of oak contribute to its complexity. This wine exhibits excellent balance and structure, with a long and persistent finish that leaves a lasting impression. It is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but also has the potential to age gracefully, allowing its flavors to further develop and evolve over time. Read more

Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
