This is fresh and beautiful with creamy texture and lovely fruit. Medium body. Lemon rind and hints of pear. Crisp. Always a go-to white. Drink now.

When mixing terroirs in Mendoza, winemakers typically look to include the best that each has to offer. The 2019 Chardonnay Catena combines grapes from Gualtallary & Villa Bastías in Tupungato, El Cepillo in San Carlos and Agrelo in Luján de Cuyo; it is a vivid vindication of that strategy. Well-ripened, it offers penetrating pear and green apple aromas over a solid bed of herbs and oak, with hints of vanilla, hazelnut and caramel. Gentle but commercial with a velvety texture and taut, lively acidity, it's everything you could ask for from a New World Chardonnay.
