TIKAL NATURAL MALBEC-SYRAH 2015

Tikal is owned by Ernesto Catena and is named after his son. Ernesto spent his childhood in the vineyards of Mendoza among wine-growers and local pundits. Since then, he has experienced a kaleidoscope of cultures, living in New York, Buenos Aires, Berkeley, Cambridge (MA), Milan and London. But his heart remains in his homeland of Argentina where he now lives. Ernesto named this particular wine “Patriota” ( “Patriot”) since Bonarda and Malbec grapes have been at the core of Argentina 's great winemaking tradition since its foundation. The original artwork of this passionate dancing couple was created by Ernesto's close friend and artist, Ariel Mlynarzewicz. "I also tasted the 2015 Natural, which was a good chance to compare the two vintages of this Malbec with 30% Syrah from Vista Flores. All their wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts and there are no corrections, so the wines show the character of the vintage faithfully. This is the wine that seems to have had less influence from the élevage, showing the work they do in the vineyard. 2015 was a cooler vintage and it resulted in a fresher wine, with good acidity and a fruit-driven nose. It has intense flavors, nice fruit and a very good core of acidity. Very good." The Wine Advocate, 91 Points
