Family vintners for over 100 years, the Catenas are recognized for their pioneering role in high-altitude viticulture in Argentina. Over two decades ago, Nicolás Catena Zapata selected the Tupungato appellation with its pebble-covered soils and extreme cool nights, to plant the family's Chardonnay vineyards. Tupungato lies between 4000 and 5000ft in the foothills of the Andes mountains. This Chardonnay is deeply aromatic with expressive citrus fruit aromas and rich mineral notes.

Toppa med grönsaker. Jag har delat denna med min chef mer än en gång.
Jag noterade en stark färg. Jag tyckte att Catena Zapata Chardonnay Tupungato luktade som mango, banan och päron. Jag har märkt en viss röksmak.
