Nicolás Catena Zapata planted the Adrianna vineyard in Gualtallary with a single goal in mind: to find the coolest location for growing vines in Mendoza.

The Adrianna vineyard is located at almost 5,000’ elevation in the Gualtallary sub-district of the Tupungato region. At this extreme high altitude, the nights are cool, only a few degrees above freezing even in the summer. The night-day temperature difference is between 15 and 20 degrees. And the sunlight is more intense because of the altitude.

The Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard White Stones Chardonnay is a wine that exemplifies the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of the Catena family in Mendoza, Argentina.

On the nose, delicate aromas of mineral notes and white flowers greet the senses, offering a glimpse into the elegance that awaits. This Chardonnay unfolds on the palate with finesse, revealing flavours of pear, apple and a subtle stony minerality. The wine's harmonious balance and refined structure create a truly captivating experience.

The Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard White Stones Chardonnay 2021 is a testament to the vineyard's high-altitude location and deep soils, which contribute to the wine's remarkable freshness and optimal acidity.

It is recommended to allow the wine to mature gracefully for several years, allowing its flavors to further develop and integrate. This patient approach will reward the discerning wine enthusiast with a truly memorable tasting experience.
