Catena Zapata D.V. Catena Grapa

An elegant, Italian-style spirit from Catena

A distilled grape spirit, Grappa is essentially a way of using up surplus grape pulp; colourless and un-aged, it often tastes like underwhelming leftovers.

This grapa from Argentina's Catena is quite different, a class act.

Strong, pure and fresh it is relatively neutral with aromas of anise, fennel seed and pastry shop.

A very elegant digestivo; can be enjoyed at any temperature, but slightly chilled is best. Good.
