Review

The Catena Alta range speaks for itself: altitude and therefore freshness. With this name and assuredly aware of this winery's excellent work already, you can imagine what you're going to find in each bottle of Catena Alta Chardonnay: a serious white, characterised by elegance, minerality, excellent acidity, penetrating aromas and a Burgundy texture. It's made from grapes grown in two vineyards, the Adrianna vineyard (located in Gualtallary) and the Domingo vineyard (in Villa Bastías). A precise and flavoursome Chardonnay, with a slightly saline finish.

Bona relació qualitat preu

Perfecte per maridar plats vegetarians, color groc clar amb final encantador i per mi un dels millors vins del mon.

Very good value

This is a very good value for money Chardonnay. Very good depth of flavor, lovely fruit. This Chardonnay never disappoints.

This is really good value for money Chardonnay. Lovely fruit well integrated with the wood. We live in Bordeaux, a Chardonnay wilderness.

Excellent Chardonnay

Complexe, fruité mis en valeur par l'élevage en fûts. Un excellent Chardonnay dans cette gamme de prix. A revoir avec le temps.

Bodega Catena Zapata

In keeping with family tradition, Nicolás Catena Zapata is now the third generation to run the winery and can count on daughter Laura to follow in his footsteps. They have been able to make the most of terroir best described as poor, yet exceptional, holding to the firm belief that these particular lands possess hidden qualities, excellent for grape-growing. The wine-making philosophy of Nicolás Catena lies in the art of blending fruit from different vineyards. Despite the ...
