Catena Alta

Chardonnay, 2016

Argentina White

Mendoza 75cl

Eighty percent of the grapes come from Adrianna Vineyard in Gualtallary, and the rest come from the Domingo Vineyard in Viña Bastías, in Tupungato. It was fermented in French oak barriques, with wild yeasts, and only about 30% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The aging lasted for 14 months and was in new, second and third use barriques.
It's a classy drop, lovely stone fruit and citrus with toasty, nutty oak.
Full bodied and rich, but not at all heavy, good acidity keeps it fresh, hints of butterscotch and nutty toasty characters on a long finish. Excellent value at this special price.
