The Catena Chardonnay combines the unique expressions of three high altitude vineyard sites. The wine shows an intense greenish color with yellow notes. The extraordinary combination of these vineyards offer honey and tropical fruit flavors while lending notes of citrus, pears, peaches, and white flowers with a strong minerality and a delicated note of vanilla. The mouthfeel is clean, with a fresh, clean acidity. This wine would be a fantastic companion a variety of poultry dishes, dishes finished with a Nantua sauce, or to a rich seafood dish like Shrimp and Herb Risotto.

When mixing terroirs in Mendoza, winemakers typically look to include the best that each has to offer. The 2019 Chardonnay Catena combines grapes from Gualtallary & Villa Bastías in Tupungato, El Cepillo in San Carlos and Agrelo in Luján de Cuyo; it is a vivid vindication of that strategy. Well-ripened, it offers penetrating pear and green apple aromas over a solid bed of herbs and oak, with hints of vanilla, hazelnut and caramel. Gentle but commercial with a velvety texture and taut, lively acidity, it's everything you could ask for from a New World Chardonnay.
