Winemaker's Notes

Bright citrus and tropical notes on the nose give way to flavors of honey, ripe stone fruit, pear and apple. The rich silky mouthfeel is complimented with hints of baking spice and bursts of acidity that continue through the long luxurious finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Catena Alta Chardonnay was sourced from one lot in the Adrianna Vineyard. It was barrel-fermented in 50% new French oak with native yeasts followed by 12-18 months in barrel with frequent batonnage. Light gold-colored, it has a superb nose of pain grille, baking spices, mineral, nutmeg, and tropical notes. Medium-bodied, elegant, and impeccably balanced, this complex Chardonnay will drink well for another 5-6 years if not longer."
93 Points

"A ripe, rich style, with delicious fig, warm piecrust, hazelnut and dried pineapple notes that all weave through the lengthy, juicy finish. An outstanding version of the showy style. Drink now through 2010. 2,500 cases imported."
