4 /5

The White Stones Chardonnay comes from grapes from the famous Adrianna Vineyard in Gualtallary where the soil is richly covered with stones and pebbles with a high percentage of lime, hence the name White Stones. The grapes are harvested at five different times depending on the different ripeness of grapes and thus different levels of acidity, sugar and aromas. The wine is fermented in used oak barrels and stainless steel for about 15 days and no malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine is aged in stainless steel for 9-12 months before being bottled. The result is a Chardonnay of excellent quality. Extremely fresh with notes of white flowers, citrus and beautiful scents of chalk / lime / minerals. The taste is medium body with a lot of freshness and tantalizing acidity ending long and with a mineral feel. This is super! Of the White Stones 2017, only 6,600 bottles have been produced and the wine has received 98/100 James Suckling.

Bodega Catena Zapata is considered the flagship of Argentina's wineries. Robert Parker's statement says a lot: 'when all is said and done, Catena Zapata is the Argentina winery of reference, the standard of excellence'.

It was part of a wine tasting.
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.

The Catena Zapata White Stones Chardonnay reminded me of jasmine on the nose. Passes easily across the palate, smooth and very nice.
A Bodega Catena Zapata at its optimal time to drink.

Perfect for rice with vegetables. Brought by a friend and I opened it with him.
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.
