Vino sazreva 14 meseci u malim buradima od francuskog hrasta (225 l). Vino intezivno zlatno žute boje. Na mirisu nudi zrele voćne arome kruške I breskve, koje se prepliću sa delikatnim citrusnim I cvetnim notama Jasmina. Na ukusu bogat i koncentrovan sa aromama zrele kruške, jabuke, suve kajsije I dunje. Bogate I kremaste strukture.
The Catena 2013 Chardonnay mixes grapes form Agrelo (15%) and the rest from different zones in the Uco Valley (Tupungato and San Carlos, Eugenio Bustos and Altamira). 50% of the wine fermented in used oak barriques, 10% in new 500-liter French oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel. Part of the barrels go through malolactic fermentation, but not all. 2013 feels ripe despite the character of the vintage, and although the oak is a lot less noticeable than in previous vintages it provides creaminess that makes it approachable and easy. The palate is soft and the acidity is quite integrated with the fruit. An approachable, nice Chardonnay. 360,000 bottles produced.

An elegant, rich and fruity white, with plenty of creamy notes to the apple pastry, ripe pear and marzipan flavors. The juicy finish is loaded with buttery and spicy elements.
