    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Catena Chardonnay (from the Agrelo Vineyard) has a golden yellow color with pronounced green reflections. It boasts concentrated aromas of ripe tropical and citrus fruits with light notes of vanilla and toast. The mouthfeel is full, round and soft, with explosive fruit flavors of ripe pears and pineapples and a creamy texture. The wine has a lengthy finish with crisp acidity and touches of smoky toast.

    At 940 m (3,100') elevation, the Agrelo Vineyard enjoys warm sunny days that allow for full and even ripening, and cool nights that allow for an excellent balance between acidity and sugar. All year round the vineyard is managed with the latest pruning and trellising techniques. Vertical trellising, pre-harvest cluster removal, vine to vine canopy management and controlled irrigation are used at the Agrelo Vineyard to grow Chardonnay fruit with opulent flavors.

    "Bursting at the seems with sweet white fruit and spice aromas, this wine offers a satiny personality packed with velvety layers of spices. Well-balanced, expressive (and yet elegant), it also reveals a prolonged finish. It can be drunk over the next 4-5 years."
