- Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2015 Product #31498 (In Stock)
Every vintage, just another great wine from Nicolas and Laura Catena. Lightly oaked, very fresh, loaded with fruit.
"Bright gold-tinged yellow. Much deeper, riper and richer than the basic 2014 Mendoza Chardonnay, offering sweet stone fruit and apple flavors lifted by saline minerality. This dense Chardonnay shows glyceral warmth but finishes with noteworthy lift." Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points
- Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014 Product #31503 (In Stock)
From a new line highlighting the unique character of different parts of Argentina's Mendoza Valley. This is delicious and pure, especially with an hour of air.
"From a lower part of Uco Valley, featuring cooler nights than Lunlunta as well as more clay in the soil. Bright red-ruby. Initially reduced nose cleared to reveal cassis and cocoa powder aromas lifted by a floral high note. Very ripe and nicely sweet, but with well-integrated acidity and soil salinity giving the wine a light touch. Winemaker Vigil told me he did more carbonic fermentation for Malbec in 2014 as he wanted less extraction, but this is still in a firmly tannic style--not to mention backward for a wine made this way."
