    June 24, 2014 - Tropical fruits, nuts and some butter. A bit sweet on the palate, maybe the acidity's a bit too low.

    February 18, 2014 - Excellent chardonnay wine with medium to full body, well balanced oak. Enjoyed with a light cajun spiced shrimp and lobster dish with rice.

    February 8, 2014 - Beautiful colour between yellow and lime.

    In the nose fresh caramel, honey melon. In the mouth on the one side a confirmation of the nose, on the other side also acidity comes into the mix now. Very pleasing. Perhaps it could be just a little fresher. Nonetheless really good.

    (Catena Alta Chardonnay) #1; COLOR-golden; NOSE-nice minerality (flint and blue rock); a smokiness and creaminess from the oak; a mix of Macon with a little CA love; some citrus as well; PALATE-great weight; really nice full bodied on the palate; heavy white peach flavors; really well made; great length; very fresh; a very long finish with vanilla and apple flavors; finishes like a $60 White Burgundy; great quality fruit coming through; GV-No Score
