2016 vintage – 100% Malbec. The vineyards are located in Vista Flores (Mendoza) and the grapes are hand-harvested. They’re aged 12 months in 70% French & 30% American oak; 50% new, 50% 2nd & 3rd use. Tikal wines showcase the fusion of nature and art; the estate vineyards are certified biodynamic and organic, creating a holistic farming cycle that best represents the local terroir and quality expression of the grapes. Ernesto Catena’s creative, artistic passion is embodied in Tikal’s top-rated Malbec blends that showcase the grape’s adaptability. Aromas of smoky oak and cherry. Mouthwatering, penetrating flavors of ripe red and black cherries, red berries. Quite rich and velvety on the palate.
