  • About this winery

    At heart, Catena is a story about family. Family who poured their lives, passion and spirit into transforming scrub-laden desert into some of the most beautiful and unique vineyards in the world. Family that passed their knowledge from generation to generation, blending collective memory with state-of-the-art science from the new world of viticulture.

    The Montrachet of Argentina with incredible dried fruit, stones and limestone. Full body, layered and powerful. It has a phenolic backbone and velvety texture. Bright acidity. A white wine that is like a great red. Goes on for minutes. From limestone rich soils in the Gualtallary region. 2,000 bottles.

    March 2016

    White Bones is sourced from the easterly section of the Adrianna Vineyard and tends to be weightier than its stable mate, White Stones, seeing 100% malolactic. This is a superb Chardonnay, with power and concentration balanced by freshness and chalky minerality. Long and complex, it has the struck match notes that are so reminiscent of Burgundy. 2016-20

    Treve Ring, March 2017

    Impressive lifted, bright minerality, lemon, lemon pith and curd in White Bones, the name tipping off the strength in the lattice-like structure and the calcareous minerality throughout the soils. Incredible precision and lightness, with tingling acidity through the very lengthy, salted finish. Tight quince, green fig, Meyer lemon is tight and taught, but with a gentle generosity of Chilean UV sun. Only 100m from White Stones plot, vinified the same (fermented and aged in in 500 litre puncheons for 20-24 months), but vastly different from front to back. Argentina's finest white wine. Very age-worthy, so cellar some (and its sibling White Stones) and experience it for yourself.

    This is from just 100 m away from the white stones, and it’s completely different. So fresh, floral and mineral with lovely precision and fine lemony fruit. There’s a really lovely mineral quality here with a stony edge and taut citrus fruits, as well as some subtle mint characters lurking. There’s a really fine lemony finish that just keeps on going. A beautiful wine with concentration, purity and finesse.
