4 Gatos Locos 

100% High Altitude Malbec

Mendoza, Argentina

4 Gatos Locos (4 Crazy Cats) is a project created by Gabriel Bloise, Facundo Bonamaizon, Mariana and Juan Pelizzatti - winemaker, viticulturist and founders of Chakana Winery.

Last year we featured the 2018 only to sell out the vintage!

4 Gatos locos is packaged with 4 different labels, reflecting the different personalities of the partners in this project.
In an industry dominated by narcissistic efforts of self-promotion 4 Gatos Locos (a popular phrase in Argentina meaning “nobodies”) represents an authentic collective effort to develop outstanding wine that captures the personality and the potential that Mendoza has to offer.

Robert Parker"s Wine Advocate

"This is a dark, aromatic and ripe Malbec at 14.8% alcohol with mellow acidity and a soft and juicy texture with round tannins. It is quite fruit-driven, with integrated oak after aging in used 500-liter French oak barrels and 5,000-liter oak vat. The vines are now certified organic. "


Our Thoughts on this wine.....

Aged in French oak  for 24 months, then aged 12 months in bottle.
Impressive concentration and depth, this has a sense of freshness and yet richness that sets it apart. The blueberries, cassis, blackberries and red plums pervade the nose and palate. The finish is suave, gently spicy and long. Full-bodied and very well balanced, drink now by opening one hour before or by decanting or hold for the next 3-8 years.

About the Vineyard.....
The project centers on a 20-hectare vineyard in Alto Gualtallary, the most prominent growing region in Argentina.
The vineyard is situated 1,360 meters above sea level, on a 10% slope on the Sierra del Jaboncillo - a relatively old geological formation near the alluvial fan of the Las Tunas river, in the Tupungato area.

The long exposure to arid conditions of calcium rich gravel has created one of the most calcium carbonate-rich areas in Mendoza. This combination of altitude, slope, gravel and the calcium carbonate create uniquely deep, textured wines, with intense color and mineral freshness. Moderate high temperatures controlled by high altitude in sunny conditions produce perfectly ripe grapes of unusually intense color and great vitality, balanced by the mineral freshness of calcium carbonate. Local aromatic plants, naturally occurring in native vegetation areas interspersed in the vineyard, give the wine a unique herbal touch that underline the character of the place.
