External Reviews for Catena Chardonnay California
Located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, Catena has been recognized, as one of Argentinarsquo;s finest producers of chardonnay, and this vintage is no exception. Full-bodied, with subtle tones of rich oak, hints of apricot, and pear give this wine great balance and mouthfeel.
The 2002 vintage of the Catena Chardonnay promises to be their best effort to date. The wine shows a light golden color with marked greenish hues. The nose offers white stone and citrus fruit aromas interwoven with light notes of vanilla and slate. The mouthfeel is full and clean with pear and fig fruit flavors and a touch of sweet spice. The finish is fresh yet persistent, with bright, crisp acidity.
