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.

Located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, Catena has been recognized, as one of Argentina'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.

Very good and fresh; one of the better examples of a balanced Argentine Chard that you'll encounter. Aromas of pear, vanilla and oak are solid and well blended, while the peach and pear flavors are exact. Some citrus, mineral and baking spice on the finish create a fine ending.

Exhibits a Burgundian-like leesy, smoky, toasty, roasted nut and tropical fruit-scented nose of moderate complexity. In the mouth, it is rich, concentrated and nicely-textured, with medium to full body, and gobs of ripe, honeyed, citrusy fruit with orange and tangerine notes. This is a delicious, complex, Burgundian-styled Chardonnay for drinking over the next 2 years.

Golden-straw color. Tangy aromas of honey, nuts and curry powder. Fat and spicy, and slightly pètillant. Boasts rather thick honey and apricot flavors (and a bit of residual sugar?) yet manages to be fresh and spicy. Finishes with good length.

Argentina's great international success, Catena sets high standards for their wines. In fact, they've repeatedly skipped vintages when they felt the wines have been anything short of excellent. 2006 is a vintage that made the cut: this Chardonnay is loaded with toasty apples and great acidity.

Master enologist and WNY native Paul Hobbs oversees the production of this Chardonnay, widely acclaimed as South America's greatest white wine. Aromas of pear, tropical fruit, and hazelnut lead into a creamy, layered wine of many flavors and polished texture-a wine that is appropriately compared to Chassagne Montrachet.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 vintage of the Catena Chardonnay combines the unique expressions of three high altitude vineyard sites. The La Piramide vineyard offers rich pineapple, passion fruit flavors and aromas with a touch of sweet honey with a rich mouthfeel. The Domingo vineyard lends notes of citrus fruit with floral notes and excellent acidity. The Adrianna vineyard contributes green apple, pear and fig flavors with a strong mineral component and vibrant acidity. The wine shows a light yellow color with marked greenish tones. The aromas show tropical fruit flavors with touches of apple and pear as well as hints of cinnamon and minerals. The mouthfeel is full yet clean, with fresh, crisp acidity.
