Bodega Catena Zapata Chardonnay Alamos 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Goldgelbe Farbe, grünliche Akzente. Fein parfümierte Nase nach Limetten, Orangenzeste, auch gut gereifte Birnen und ein Hauch Brioche. Im Gaumen von tollem Trinkfluss, die Chardonnay-Aromatik trifft sich mit fein-mineralischen Noten; geschmeidig und mit einer gut stützenden Säure ausgestattet, gute Abgangslänge.

Italian Nicola Catena founded this business in 1902 and it is still in her family today. It  is now a state-of-the art winery located in Vista Flores, Mendoza, Argentina. Felipe Stahlschmidt is the chief winemaker. Grapes are grown in the high altitude slopes of Mendoza and hand-selected for quality, ensuring only the best grapes are used. They are then vinified using precise details which preserve their inherent flavors and aromas. All of this contributes to a high quality, value-driven wine. Alamos produces Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Torrontes in young and reserva styles.  Read less

This Chardonnay was not as good as I expected. I tried it because a friend recommended it. I have to say It is good but It does not really taste like a Chardonnay, it does not have the qualities of a regular chardonnay

Catena Chardonnay combines expressions of the high altitude vineyards. Adrianna vineyard, the highest one, gives flowers notes and a strong minerality. The Domingo vineyard provides dry fruits and a crisp finish. Finally, La Piramide Vineyard contributes honeyed tropical fruit flavors with an oily mouthfeel. This chardonnay presents a yellow greenish color with aromas of ripe pears, citrus, vanilla and mineral notes. On the palate, it is a clean fresh wine with crisp acidity.

Built up by the Catena family in Argentina (who still have a large stake in the business), Alamos produces terrific value wines year in, year out. This year, the Chardonnay really stands out. Full-bod
