The Catena Chardonnay combines the unique expressions of three high altitude vineyard sites. The wine shows an intense greenish color with yellow notes. The extraordinary combination of these vineyards offer honey and tropical fruit flavors while lending notes of citrus, pears, peaches, and white flowers with a strong minerality and a delicated note of vanilla. The mouthfeel is clean, with a fresh, clean acidity. This wine would be a fantastic companion a variety of poultry dishes, dishes finished with a Nantua sauce, or to a rich seafood dish like Shrimp and Herb Risotto.

The 2022 Chardonnay is made with grapes from the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo. Fifty percent of the wine was aged 6-8 months in up to third-use French oak barrels. Yellow with a golden sheen. The nose presents aromas of dill, creamed corn, and pear with hazel- and other nutty notes against a faint oaky backdrop. The palate is indulgent and broad, with a creamy texture and refreshing expression before the lingering nutty finish.

The 2022 Catena Chardonnay is a medicinal and balsamic expression of the varietal, with aromas of bay leaf and white flowers. The palate is dry and medium-bodied with mellow acidity and moderate ripeness and alcohol.
