The nose shows an excellent mixture of delicate white flowers and white fruit aromas with pure minerality notes. The mouthfeel is elegant and fresh, showing jasmine, ripe peach and pear flavors interwoven with mineral notes. The finish is bright, with clean acidity and wonderful length.
This wine pairs well with scallops, shrimp, stonecrab and the delicately sweet flavor of halibut."
Wine Fact: "In his pursuit to make wines that stand with the best in the world, Nicolás Catena identified the best, historic rows in the Catena family's estate vineyards. White Stones Chardonnay comes from a select 27 rows within Block 1 of the Adrianna Vineyard. The name refers to the ground beneath the vines which is covered with gravel - oval white stones."
