CATENA ALTA CHARDONNAY - 1999
13.7% alcohol from Mendoza, Argentina
Golden color like a Sauternes. Butter and oak on the nose with flavors of citrus, pear, piña colada, honey and caramel apple on the finish. Somewhat oily mouthfeel yet soft with good acidity.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Elegant and structured with good complexity. A step up from the Catena Chardonnay, this wine packs more of a punch on both the aromatics and flavor profile. Retails for around $30 a bottle.
