The grapes for Catena Alta Chardonnay come from Catena'a Adrianna vineyard. The Adrianna vineyard (named after Nicolas Catena's youngest daughter), located at 5,000 feet elevation in the Gualtallary district of Tupungato, is the highest vineyard in all of Mendoza. Sandy and lime soils with a rocky sub-soil allow for excellent drainage. The lower average temperature and wide thermal amplitude of this unique microclimate have so far shown incredible potential, providing fruit with explosive aromatics, rich condentrated flavors, excellent natural acidity and pure elegance of style.
