Catena Alta Chardonnay 2016

$46.95 + GST

Mendoza, Argentina

Two single vineyards at almost 5000 feet elevation in the Andean foothills are behind the Catena Alta Historic Rows. The Adrianna vineyard’s calcareous soils and cool climate bring purity of flavours and a stony minerality. The nearby, gravel-covered Domingo Vineyard in Tupungato makes up 20 percent of the blend, bringing even more freshness and minerality. The style is rich and on the edge of being old-fashioned, saved from its own intensity by the acidity and mineral notes that permeate the baked apple, orange, buttery, spicy, oatmeal lees flavours.
Whole clusters are pressed, and then 100% fermented in 500 L French oak barrels with natural yeasts at low temperatures. Wild yeasts. Aged for 14 months in French oak. 30% does not undergo malolactic fermentation. First, second and third use barrels used.
