This is one of the Catena family's favourite wines, and when one considers the competition, it's a pretty significant accolade.
Made from different Chardonnay plots grown at a variety of altitudes, some which reach 4,757ft, this is a complex and fresh wine that has the balance and finesse you'd expect from Burgundy, and the generosity of fruit character that you'll often find in Catena.
With a winemaking history that very few old world wineries possess, let alone in the new world, Catena have achieved international recognition through their pioneering winemaking and vineyard management. With a special relationship to the study of vines at high altitude, they are able to boast a vast range of single vineyard and single site wines across at least four different grape varieties.
Their quest for the best from their land isn't a trivial or trendy fad to attract attention and critical acclaim; it really comes from a genuine belief and desire to find the latent properties that this set of terroirs can yield through the lens of each grape that is planted.
