    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Catena Zapata's 2006 Chardonnay was sourced from three estate vineyards and fermented with natural yeasts. It then spent 10 months sur-lie in French oak, 40% new. Light gold-colored with a slight green tint, it exhibits a nose of slate, toast, butterscotch, pear, and apple. Medium-bodied, the wine is nicely balanced by crisp acidity, and the flavors are intense and persistent. Drink this outstanding value over the next 1-2 years. When all is said and done, Catena Zapata is the Argentina winery of reference – the standard of excellence for comparing all others. The brilliant, forward-thinking Nicolas Catena remains in charge, with his daughter, Laura, playing an increasingly large role. The Catena Zapata winery is an essential destination for fans of both architecture and wine in Mendoza. It is hard to believe, given the surge in popularity of Malbec in recent years, that Catena Zapata only began exporting Malbec to the United States in 1994."

    An excellent, crisp wine with a good oak after taste.

    Defintely oaky but didn't totally overwhelm fruit and nice acidity. Seemed to improve with repeated tasting, perhaps needing to find right temperature. My rating 88 to 89 (WS). Poultry and stronger cheeses likely good pairing.

    Can't go wrong with this one for the price. Crisp, fruity with a nice, non-overpowering oaky finish.
