Bodegas Catena 2015 Catena Alta Chardonnay - 92-93pts

Bodegas Catena 2015 Catena Alta Chardonnay (Mendoza) Argentina

Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $38.99 + taxes
Alcohol: 13.5%
Date Tasted: May 16th, 2018

Tasting Notes: Produced from select lots from two of Catena's high altitude vineyards with a combination of gravelly and limestone soils. This is an enchanting and elegant Chardonnay with gentle oak influence throughout the gorgeous, easy-to-love nose of vanilla cream, apple, melon and stonefruit aromas and the mango, mineral and grapefruit flavoured, slightly off-dry palate. 

Balance is spot-on with a delicate weight and texture and lively acidity. Finish is long and refined. Very Niagara Peninsula in its structure. Should improve over the next two to three years. Drink 2020-2022.
