Winemaker Notes

The 2009 Alamos Chardonnay exhibits flavors of ripe apple and tropical fruit flavors, with a hint of spice and butterscotch from the oak aging.

The grapes were vineyard selected and hand-harvested prior to being pressed. The juice was cold settled and solids were removed prior to fermentation in upright fermenters and barrels. Approximately seventy-five percent of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, before aging on the lees for 3 to 4 months to impart a rich, toasty mouthfeel. The wine was then aged in French and American oak for 3 to 6 months prior to bottling.

Critical Acclaim

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Bright, light yellow. Subtly, pure, ripe aromas of nectarine and yellow plum. Supple, sweet and seamless, with attractive, lush stone fruit flavors for a wine in this price range. The satisfying finish offers a nice touch of grip. A great chardonnay value.

From the vineyard to the winery, the Alamos wines are made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catena's high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang time, preserving the fruit's full spectrum of aromas and flavors.

At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed, fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled and two to four year old barrels are used to age the wines.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.
