Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard White Bones Chardonnay 2020
|Region||Argentina, Uco Valley|
"Fascinating nose of white lavender, lemon, pineapple, green apple, thyme, rosemary, sourdough, almond and oyster shell. It’s medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and a tense, spicy palate. So much flavor and fragrance. Incredibly expressive, with evolving layers of fresh fruit, spices, flowers and herbs. Drink or hold." James Suckling 99 points Drink 2022-32
Made with grapes from the Adrianna Vineyard in Gualtallary located at 1,450 meters and aged for up to 16 months in used French barrels, 40% in flor. Yellow in the glass with greenish flecks, it presents an aromatic nose of basil, mint, herbs, lemon and ginger. More austere than other vintages, the whole wine buzzes with heightened freshness (pH 3.2). Sparky on the tongue, and the flor keeps things concentrated and provides a terse texture. Complex and long- lasting.
