Miau Malbec
4 Gatos Locos
Argentina - Mendoza    - Gualtallary

Miau is the typical cry a cat makes when willing to attract attention. Made by four mad cats - Mariana, Facundo, Gabriel and Juan - from their vineyard high in Alto Gualtallary, where the sun, slopes and limestone create the best wines in Valle de Uco. 

The wine boasts a very deep color, red fruit aromas, spice and herbal perfume with an intense profound mineral palate. Juicy and round tannins.

Wine Type
100% Malbec
Agricultural Practices
Spontaneously fermented with very little intervention to maintain fruit expression. Aged in cement and French oak.
2,000 (9-liter cases)

Grilled meat.

2020 Miau Malbec - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"From vines that cannot be certified organic because of the neighbors, the pure Malbec 2020 Miau is juicy and varietal, produced in a light way with less extraction, making it more approachable. It's rich and ripe, with clean aromas of violets, berries and fruit and a soft mouthfeel, quite tasty, almost salty. It matured in used French oak barrels. 20,000 bottles were filled in June 2021."

descorchados 2021"This is the entry-level wine of Cuatro Gatos Locos and it's 100% malbec from the Gualtallary zone, a high-altitude location more than 1,300 meters above sea level in the Uco Valley. It has the succulence and voluptuousness of a Gualtallary malbec, with the exuberant flavors of red fruits and violets in a pleasing body with round and juicy tannins. A wine for grilled meat—the perfect match."
