CATENA CATENA - Chardonnay - 2017

CATENA Chardonnay 2017

See the wine detail page

91 Points

A blend of different vineyards, the 2017 Catena Chardonnay fermented and aged in stainless steel and oak barrels with the lees (60% of the wine) for around ten months. It's a shy white, approachable and clean, with integrated acidity and focused flavors. This range is very drinkable and faithful to the variety.
