    Description

    Nicolas Catena Zapeta is an extremely deserved winner of a lifetime achievement award from the wine enthusiast. His seach for perfection and innovation helped put Argentina on the wine map and inspired a generation of Argentinian winemakers. However, it doesn’t just stop at Nicolas. His daughter, Dr Laura Catena, has taken charge of the estate and the name has gone from strength to strength under her stewardship. A medical doctor, winemaker and figure of inspiration, Laura is a one-off. She has become an icon in the world of wine and continues to push boundaries and make incredible wines.

    The Catena approach has always been terroir first, which is how they have uncovered some of the finest land Argentina has to offer. The Addriana vineyard is thought of as the Grand Cru of South America – the wines from here are simply sensational.

    The 2020 Chardonnay Catena is 90% from the Uco Valley, fermented with whole bunches and aged for up to eight months in barrels. Yellow with a golden sheen. The expressive nose presents notes of linden blossom, apple, creamed corn and hazelnuts. In the mouth, it’s unctuous and indulgent but also has decent tension, a terse texture and long-lasting, bold flavors. The oak reappears on the rather concentrated aftertaste.
    91/100 - Joaquin Hidalgo, Vinous (Tasted April 2021)

    The medicinal and balsamic 2020 Catena Chardonnay has pungent aromas of bay leaf and white flowers and a dry and balanced palate with some chalky sensations and tasty flavors. It has moderate ripeness for a warm and dry year like 2020 and good freshness. 282,000 bottles produced. It was bottled between October and November 2020.
