Exotic aromas of orange, fresh apricot and spices. Fat, supple and sweet, with fairly intense flavors of melon, orange and pineapple. Has the sheer fruit to buffer its slight hard edge. Firmer and fresher that most Argentine chardonnays in this price range.

Full yellow-gold. Rather exotic aromas of apricot, orange, honey and smoky oak. Then sweet but firm, with very intense flavors of apricot, peach, kiwi and minerals (Catena described these flavors as "acidic tropical fruits"). Catena's chardonnays are consistently among the elite of Argentina, as few other producers manage to capture this much freshness of fruit. This is carrying between three and four grams per liter of residual sugar.

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.

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.

Peach, melon and apple carry the clean but ordinary bouquet, and behind that comes a round palate full of ripe banana, pear, caramel and vanilla. Fully oaked but not overdone, with toast on the finish. Good Argentine Chardonnay.

Yellow with a gold tinge. Deeply pitched aromas of stone fruits, spices, honey, flowers, dusty stone and toasty oak; showed a note of apricot candy with aeration. Rich, ripe flavors of peach, apricot and sexy oak spices show a lovely sweetness. More viscous than the Alamos chardonnay but kept fresh by strong acidity. This silky, very concentrated wine finishes with an impressively persistent flavor of ripe apricot. Catena continues to be in a class of its own for chardonnay in Argentina.

Bright, pale yellow. Very fresh aromas of stone and citrus fruits, with hints of lees and brown spices. Pure, juicy and clean, with lovely subtle sweetness of fruit and a rather suave texture. Finishes with noteworthy length and grip. As usual, this is a stunning value in chardonnay.
