The 2005 vintage of the Catena Chardonnay combines the unique expressions of
three high altitude vineyard sites. The La Piramide vineyard offers rich pineapple,
banana fruit flavors and aromas with a touch of sweet honey with a rich
mouthfeel. The Domingo vineyard lends notes of citrus fruit with floral notes and
excellent acidity. The Adrianna vineyard contributes apple, pear and fig flavors
with a strong mineral component and vibrant acidity.
The wine shows a light yellow color with marked greenish tones. The aromas
show tropical fruit flavors with touches of apple and pear as well as hints of
cinnamon and minerals. The mouthfeel is full yet clean, with fresh, crisp acidity.
