This 2018 has a very clear golden colour. White flowers are perceived in this Catena Zapata White Stones Chardonnay. Good flavour and long aftertaste.
Very good this 2018 with rice crust.
A Bodega Catena Zapata at its optimal time to drink.
Like many Chardonnay it had a light golden brown colour. As soon as I smelled it, I noticed the white flowers scent. You can drink the whole bottle without realizing it.
