The Catena Chardonnay combines the unique expressions of three high-altitude vineyard sites. The wine shows an intense straw yellow color with greenish highlights. The extraordinary combination of vineyards offers concentrated aromas of ripe citrus and honeyed tropical fruits with notes of peaches, white flowers, and spicy vanilla. On the palate, citrus and stone fruit flavors abound followed by flavors of pear and ripe melon with vanilla, sweet spice, and toast. The finish is fresh and crisp leaving traces of minerality on the palate that entice one to another sip.

A top-notch chardonnay by any measure, the 2013 Catena is simply fine all the way and around; shows ripe apple and dried peach notes, with a touch of citrus. Charmingly youthful, with plenty of richess to satisfy anyone. Crisp in the aftertaste.
