User Reviews for Catena Alta Chardonnay Bodega Catena Zapata Treviso

Winemaker's Notes:

At almost 5,000 feet elevation in the Andean foothills, the Adrianna vineyard's pebble covered soils and cool climate are ideal for growing Chardonnay. The fruit from the Adrianna vineyard has a purity of flavors and a minerality that is particular to this vineyard and can not be found anywhere else in Mendoza. Catena Alta Chardonnay is made from a special lot, rows 5 through 38, of the Adrianna vineyard. This wine undergoes a demanding selection process in both the vineyard and the winery. The 2007 Catena Alta Chardonnay has a bright greenish - yellow color. The nose shows an excellent mixture of citrus fruit interwoven with honeyed tropical fruit notes and floral tones. The mouthfeel is rich and concentrated showing ripe pear, apple and apricot flavors with a light note of sweet nutmeg spice. The finish shows bright, cleand acidity and wonderful length.

Tasting Notes:

This "single vineyard" wine is a faithful expression of Mendoza ´s highest altitude microclimate. Warm, sunny days and cool nights allow the Chardonnay grapes grown at the foot of the Cordon del Plata mountain range to achieve excellent balance and maturity. Angélica Zapata Chardonnay 2007 offers an intense golden colour with light shades of green. The nose is rich and full-flavored, with vibrant citrus fruit and attractive minerality. On the palate, a smooth sweet entry leads to an unctuous, fresh wine, packed with ripe fruit and subtle vanilla. The finish is long and lingering, with crisp, well-balanced acidity.
