92 Points - Wine Advocate
Created from 100 % Chardonnay sourced from three of the family's vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo and Tupungato, Bodega Catena Zapata "Catena" Chardonnay is a richly textured wine with floral notes, ripe tropical-fruit flavors, a strong mineral character and excellent acidity. The grapes from La Piramide Vineyard of Lujan de Cuyo lend the wine ripe citrus and stone fruit aromas and flavors. The grapes from Domingo Vineyard in the Villa Bastias district of Tupungato gives the wine its rich texture and mouthfeel. The high-altitude Adrianna Vineyard in the Gualtallary district of Tupungato produces grapes with lively floral notes, pronounced minerality, and a crisp, cool-climate acidity. The Catena Chardonnay combines the unique expressions of these historic parcels and emerges a wine of a unique character that has natural balance, concentration, and a distinct varietal identity.

“The 2014 Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from the Valle de Uco starting with the 2014 vintage. It's a mixture of vineyards (six) in different zones of the Valle de Uco, in the departments of Tupungato and San Carlos. Each vineyard is vinified differently and aged separately. The wines are blended at the end before bottling. The nose is subtly oaked with white fruit and floral aromas. The palate is medium-bodied and has very nice acidity which makes the wine not only fresher, but also longer and more mineral. This is the freshest of all the vintages of this Chardonnay, and the change in vineyards is really noticeable. Super!” - Wine Advocate
