Catena Chardonnay 2010

Catena Chardonnay 750ML 2010     
Sku: 19462

The Catena family has conducted extensive research into the soils and microclimates of Mendoza's high altitude wine country in the foothills of the Andes mountains. At different altitudes, the family’s Chardonnay vineyards express a unique profile of aromas and flavors: the ripe tropical fruit flavors and rich texture of the La Pirámide vineyard (3,100’ elevation); the white stone fruit and citrus notes of the Domingo Vineyard (3,700’ elevation); the lively floral notes, strong mineral character and excellent acidity of the Adrianna vineyard (5,000’). The blend of these components creates a wine of unique character that has balance, concentration and a strong varietal identity.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points
The 2010 Chardonnay was barrel-fermented, put through full malolactic fermentation, and aged for 9 months in 30% new French oak. The enticing nose offers up hints of toast, pear, and tropical fruits, leading to a well-balanced wine with the fruit buttressed by vibrant acidity. Drink this tasty effort over the next 3-4 years. It is an outstanding value. ”
