Marquis Tasting Note:
For over four generations, the Catena family has grown vines in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Argentina. Laura Catena, great-granddaughter of winery founder Nicola Catena, has created a richly textured Chardonnay blend with floral notes, ripe tropical-fruit flavors, a strong mineral character and excellent acidity. Catena Chardonnay is sourced from three of the family´s high-altitude vineyard sites. It displays lovely ripe notes of citrus, honey, tropical fruit, peaches and white flowers. The finish is fresh and crisp leaving traces of minerality. This wine would be a fantastic companion a variety of poultry dishes or to a rich seafood dish like Shrimp and Herb Risotto.
