Bodega Catena Zapata Catena Chardonnay 2014

$18.99

Perhaps the greatest vintage ever for this Mendoza classic. "The nose is subtly oaked with white fruit and floral aromas. The palate is medium-bodied and has very nice acidity which makes the wine not only fresher, but also longer and more mineral. This is the freshest of all the vintages of this Chardonnay, and the change in vineyards is really noticeable. Super!" WA 92

Surprising this 2014 stands out to me! Purchased on Sale for 13.98! Yup good price. On opening a little restrained. Gave it 15 minutes and WOW tropical fruits with good acid backbone, and yes just a hint of oak. Real creamy on the finish. I would say 93+ Rating from me. CB

@CatenaWines 2014 Chardonnay (SRP $20): Fruit for this Chardonnay was sourced from three high-altitude vineyards, all owned by the Catena family that range from 3,100 to 4,700 feet. Aromas of pear tart, citrus blossom and spiced fruitcake are joined on the palate by yellow-fleshed fruit flavors and floral notes. It is noticeably round with a sweet, mouth-filling texture supported by adequate acidity and freshness. A very enjoyable Chardonnay; it ends with a faint mineral streak and overtones of spice lingering on the medium-long finish. Try a bottle with pasta, risotto dishes or oven-roasted chicken. It’s also a satisfying solitary sipper. Region: Mendoza, Argentina. Other info: ABV 13.5%, partial ML, matured in new-to-two year old French oak barrels for 10 months, bottled aged 12 months, and natural cork enclosure. #CatenaZapata #Mendoza #Argentina #Chardonnay #myvinespot #tastingnote #wine #wineconsumer #wineblogger #winewriter #winelover #wine #winetastingparty #lifeisgood #instamood #instawine #winesofinstagram #wineenthusiast #wineconsumer #winestagram #wineblogger #winemoments #wineoclock #wineporn #winetime #winelover #instagood #instalike #tastingnote #tastingnotes

Sipping Fine Wine

Grapes from three high altitude vineyards. The wine is light straw yellow with stone fruit and floral aromas. On the palate peach, pear and citrus flavors with a bit of vanilla spice. The wine has a nice punch of acidity, well balanced giving off a crispness. On the medium+ finish, oak and minerality show up nicely on the ending.
