Bodega Catena Zapata White Bones Chardonnay 750 mL

Bodega Catena Zapata White Bones Chardonnay 2014 . Catena’s Adrianna vineyard is almost totally devoted to red, except for a few rows here and there where they make enough Chardonnay for about 2000 bottles, each of which are extraordinary. Almost unreasonably aromatic and expressive, with bright pineapple, ripped mint leaves and guava nearly clawing their way out of the glass at you. The body is full but fresh, those looking for butter won’t find Nirvana here, but Burgundy lovers will; the tense, lively finish goes on for whole minutes and transcends expectations and, frankly, descriptions. My words don’t serve this wine well, none do, we don’t have them yet, you need to try it. 95 points Robert Parker, MW Tim Atkin’s WHITE WINE OF THE YEAR.

  • The Adrianna vineyard is located at almost 5,000’ elevation in the Gualtallary sub-district of the Tupungato region. White Bones Chardonnay comes from select rows within Block 1 of the Adrianna Vineyard. The name refers to the soil underneath these rows, which is layered with calcareous deposits and limestone as well as fossilized animal bones - remnants of a river that used to pass through the region.
  • Cold settling for 12 hours in stainless steel tanks at 6º C. Fermentation in French oak barrels for 45 - 95 days at 16°C. Battonage. Partial malolactic fermentation. Aged for 12-16 months in 2nd, 3d and 4th use French oak barrels.
  • 95 POINTS! Robert Parker, 2014 vintage

    "The character of the soils used for the 2014 White Bones Chardonnay is so strong that it marked the wine more than the character of the vintage. 2014 was definitively riper than 2013, but the wine is still incredibly fresh and mineral. The parameters of these whites from Adrianna are just incredible, extremely low pH (around 3) and very high acidity (around nine grams in tartaric), which should provide for longevity. And great freshness and vibrant palates, of course"
