Catena Alta Chardonnay 2020
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
"The creamy and mellow 2020 Catena Alta Chardonnay comes from a warmer year, and the wine shows it. It still has moderate alcohol (13.6%) and ripeness and keeps the balance and poise, but the oak is a little more noticeable than in the 2021 I tasted next to it. 87,600 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2021." Luis Gutiérrez Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 points Drink 2023-26

The textbook barrel-fermented 2019 Catena Alta Chardonnay was produced in 500-liter barrels with wild yeasts, and the élevage was in those same barrels with lees and lasted for 14 months. It has an expressive and characterful nose that combines notes of dry herbs, white flowers and fruit. It's elegant with good integration of the oak and has great freshness and very good acidity. 90,000 bottles were filled in May 2020.
