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.

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"
