  A blend of different vineyards, the 2017 Catena Chardonnay fermented and aged in stainless steel and oak barrels with the lees (60% of the wine) for around ten months. It's a shy white, approachable and clean, with integrated acidity and focused flavors. This range is very drinkable and faithful to the variety. 198,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2018. Luis Gutierrez


Bright lemon-yellow color. Pure aromas and flavors of peach and flowers. Fat and even slightly warm on entry but supported by a solid spine of acidity. Finishes savory and firm, with a suggestion of heat. - Stephen Tanzer
