Catena, White Stones Chardonnay, Gualtallary, Uco Valley, Argentina 2012

Rating: 19.25/20pts
Since 2009, winemaker Alejandro Vigil has been experimenting with vines planted on calcareous soils from the Adrianna Vineyard in Gualtallary, 1,500m above sea level in the Uco Valley. The mountain climate and these extremely chalky soils give this wine an intense freshness and minerality. It has a focused arrow of acidity with powerful freshness, and a stout, firm body full of tension. It shows both great varietal character and sense of place.
