Catena Zapata 2022 Chardonnay 750ml
The 2022 Chardonnay is made with grapes from the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo. Fifty percent of the wine was aged 6-8 months in up to third-use French oak barrels. Yellow with a golden sheen. The nose presents aromas of dill, creamed corn, and pear with hazel- and other nutty notes against a faint oaky backdrop. The palate is indulgent and broad, with a creamy texture and refreshing expression before the lingering nutty finish.
Score: 91 points -- Joaquin Hidalgo, Vinous, 2023
