Sourced from Bodega Catena Zapata's high-altitude vineyards in Mendoza, the Alamos line is consistent in quality and value year after year. From the vineyard to the winery, the Alamos wines are made to emphasize varietal fruit character with the most gentle and minimal handling of the grapes. The wines have ripe forward fruit with soft, sweet tannins that make them highly approachable upon release.
The 2006 Alamos Chardonnay shows a light yellow color with greenish tones. The nose is fresh and focused, with ripe tropical and citrus fruits layered with floral notes and a touch of vanilla. The mouthfeel is clean, with pineapple and mango fruits with a touch of lemon and sweet spice. The finish is bright and crisp with refreshing acidity and balance.
