Description

The 2017 White Bones Chardonnay scored 99 Points from James Suckling & Tim Atkins 2020 White Wine of the Year! And now the 2018 has scored 100points, oh and a mere 97 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, this is almost unheard of…..Impressive to say the least. The Catena family have been growing and making wine in the foothills of the Andes, Mendoza for over four generations, again impressive. The Andrianna vineyard is located at about 1520metres, and again it has to be said, impressive, considering that it is nearly halfway up Mt Cook. At this height, the nights are cool, with a large diurnal fluctuation (the difference between day and night temperatures), combined with the calcareous soils, result in nothing less than a sensational wine. This is one to splash out on, its nearly Christmas!!!!! And after yet another Covid year, we deserve a little extravagance.

Smells

A heady bouquet of red apples, pears, with notes of brioche, chalk, salt, and a toasty vanilla thread.

Tastes

Rich, exuberant and a wine that completely seduces within seconds. Full bodied, dense whilst still being lively, and energetic thanks to the crystalline, acid thread that weaves it magic throughout. A wine that engages, captivates, holds your attention and commands more. Completely irresistible but it will cellar 4-5 years. Served with rich pasta or white roasted meats.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
