The 2003 vintage of the Catena Chardonnay offers the best of three high altitude vineyard sites. The La Pirámide vineyard offers rich tropical fruit flavors and aromas. The Domingo vineyard lends citrus notes and delicate floral aromas. The Adrianna vineyard adds pear and apple tones, a distinct mineral tone and refreshing acidity.
The wine shows a light golden color with marked greenish hues. The nose offers white stone and citrus fruit aromas interwoven with light notes of vanilla and slate. The mouthfeel is full and clean with pear and fig fruit flavors and a touch of sweet spice. The finish is fresh yet persistent, with bright, crisp acidity.
