    September 30, 2021 - Very similar review to last time but did drink well with homemade chicken and broccoli bake. Not a world beater but a decent wine

    August 25, 2021 - 92-93pts. Oily, a bit oaky, made with what seems to be very mature grapes (surmaturité?), but somehow Alejandro Vigil and his team at Catena Zapata managed to extract freshness and some balance from this fruit. It possesses very nice complexity for its price point, with notes of peaches, caramel, apricot, and toffle. It has very little minerality, but good acidity and length, and fills one's mouth. I wouldn't like to drink this everyday, but with food it was really nice - clearly better IMHO than the El Enemigo Chardonnay Alejandro bottles at Bodega Aleanna.

    August 6, 2021 - 3.8 Nose peach, mango, tropical, pineapple, apple, nice butter notes. Dry, high acid, medium %, medium body. Prominent flavors of pineapple, apple, mango and bitter. Lime. Decent amount of malo, not much if any lee influence. Medium finish. Beautiful chard, well balanced. Very good

    April 6, 2021 - Distinctly fully mature so drink up!
    Notwithstanding the slight heavy buttery edge and the decidedly dark hint to the golden burnish/colour, there was still much to enjoy with this, but you have to like mature Chardonnay to appreciate it and I accept many may not do so. Food is a necessity for this, in our case a chicken and ham pie. Overall, in the context of mature new world Chardonnay, not bad but I have had much better.

    June 20, 2020 - Fantastic QPR. Lovely balanced but rich chardonnay. Probably at peak
