Full body. Dense, vivid fruit with a linear frame of wonderful, energetic acidity. The energy and length just goes on for minutes. Soulful white. Argentina’s answer to Montrachet. Stares you straight in the eyes. Drink or hold.\n\n97+pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate\n\nThe 2018 White Bones Chardonnay shows a slightly showier personality than the 2018 White Stones, but it's less balsamic and minty than the 2017 White Bones. But this bottling is always a little more aromatic and forward than the more backward White Stones; there are flowers, pollen, herbs and white pepper. But both whites are more about the place and vintage, more about the chalky soils that give them a very specific mouthfeel, with a dry, austere personality. \n\nWinemaker Notes\n\n\"White Bones\" makes reference to a spot of vines planted over a patch of gravel on the topsoil, and thick layers of calcareous deposits and limestone in the subsoil. Fossilized animal bones can be found among this layers. This are remains of animals and fish that lived in stream bed area.\n\nThe nose lively citrus notes and white stone fruit . The palate is a voluptuous wine with intense flavors of pear, apple and subtle floral and mineral hints . The finish is long and clean with a strong mineral side.\n\nThe is a rich, full-bodied Chardonnay that nonetheless possesses a crisp acidity making it the perfect foil for meatier fish like tuna and swordfish as well as seafood dishes prepared with butter and cream. Try this wine with a dish like Roasted Monkfish with Cardinal Sauce for an unforgettable meal. \n\n \n\n \n\nCatena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard 'River Stones' Malbec 2016 - 750ml\n\n100pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate\n\nLike the other Malbecs from Adrianna Vineyard, the 2016 Adrianna Vineyard River Stones was bottled a little earlier, and the time in oak was shortened. It was a most unusual year that was cold and rainy and allowed for no irrigation. This has good ripeness and sharp acidity, making it powerful but extremely fresh, with a backbone of acidity that lifts the wine up and makes it extremely long and persistent. In fact, the wine blows me away with an unusual combination of power and elegance; it shows detailed and nuanced, with subtle aromas of violets, spices, tobacco and wet chalk. It has a velvety texture with ultra refined, fine-grained tannins. It is precise in the acidity and on the palate, with the textbook chalky tannins and a sapid, almost salty finish. This is serious, austere, mineral, long, compact, harmonious and concentrated, yet it feels light and has that somewhat contradictory powerful elegance. This has to be the best wine ever produced at Catena. I'd love to have a time machine and taste this wine in 20 years' time...\n\n95pts James Suckling\n\nThis is a dense and fresh malbec for the vintage. Dark berries, such as blueberries and raspberries, with a licorice and stone undertone. Full-bodied, layered and flavorful.\n\n94pts Wine \u0026amp; Spirits\n\nThis malbec grows on the site of an old riverbed, where the currents left behind smooth stones coated with calcium carbonate. The high altitude of the site and these calcium-rich soils grow elegant malbec, lean and bright in its tangy acidity. The wine feels fresh and vibrant, with scents of roses and pine needles, while the cocoa-fine tannins give it a steady, settled feel. It gets more detailed after a day open, suggesting that this will continue to evolve with more time in the bottle.\n\nWinemaker Notes\n\nThe River Stones sector of Adrianna is planted in the path of a dried river filled with white stones covered with lime - limestone. These stones make for optimal drainage and extreme temperatures because the stones absorb the heat and moderate the nights but also function like ice cubes after a very cold night. Stony soil Malbecs tend to be extremely aromatic, rich and luxurious, just like the River Stones Malbec from Adrianna.\n\n \n\n \n\nCatena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard 'River Stones' Malbec 2017 - 750ml\n\n100pts James Suckling\n\nIncredible aromas of blackberries, hot stones, wet earth and flowers. Full-bodied, it floats across the palate with ultra-fine tannins that melt into the wine. Superb, long finish of subtle fruit and terroir-defined subtleties. Try in 2022, but already a dream to taste.\n\n98pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate\n\nOne of three Malbecs from the Adrianna vineyard in Gualtallary, the 2017 Adrianna Vineyard River Stones was surprisingly fresh for the conditions of the year. They discarded a small plot that was a little too ripe. The wine fermented with full clusters and finished fermenting without skins or stems (like a white), and this was done with 100% of the volume, because in previous years, it was done for maybe 70% of the wine. This helps with the texture and the minerality, a mouthfeel rather than a flavor, reminiscent of the stony soils covered with limestone. This tends to be the most austere of the three bottlings, but it shows a little more fruit; and there is a lot of acidity, but it's nicely coated by the fruit. The result is a beautifully textured Malbec that seems to open up slowly in the glass—the violet and berry aromas get complicated by some spice (curry?), and the palate feels more layered. This is a superb expression of the austere wildness of Gualtallary.\n\nWinemaker Notes\n\nThe 2017 Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard River Stones Malbec is floral, exuberant, lengthy smooth tannins, metallic. Malbec is the ideal partner to a grilled meat dish or platter.\u003c!-- TABS --\u003e\u003c!-- \/TABS --\u003e","published_at":"2022-03-28T11:46:47-04:00","created_at":"2022-01-19T11:39:10-05:00","vendor":"Bodegas Catena Zapata","type":"Cult","tags":["Country_Argentina","Finding_Inventory","Region_Mendoza","Size_750 ml.","Special_New","Type_Cult","Vintage_MV","Winery_Bodegas Catena Zapata"],"price":80000,"price_min":80000,"price_max":80000,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":39944516010020,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"A4710","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Bodegas Catena Zapata - MV - Adriana Vineyard 100 point Collection Box - 750 ml.","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":80000,"weight":2267,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":1,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"A4710","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1997\/1819\/products\/b_6b53f6db-d82c-47bb-b179-8164ec92de2b.png?v=1643214364"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1997\/1819\/products\/b_6b53f6db-d82c-47bb-b179-8164ec92de2b.png?v=1643214364","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":21690861977636,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":2000,"width":2000,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1997\/1819\/products\/b_6b53f6db-d82c-47bb-b179-8164ec92de2b.png?v=1643214364"},"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":2000,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1997\/1819\/products\/b_6b53f6db-d82c-47bb-b179-8164ec92de2b.png?v=1643214364","width":2000}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eCountry: \u003cstrong\u003eArgentina \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eRegion: \u003cstrong\u003eMendoza\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eVintage: \u003cstrong\u003eMV\u003c\/strong\u003e - Size: \u003cstrong\u003e750 ml.\u003c\/strong\u003e - Type: \u003cstrong\u003eCult\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003eThis is a 3-750ml bottle collection from Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard 100 point wines\n\nCatena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard 'White Bones' Chardonnay 2018 - 750ml\n\n100pts James Suckling\n\nThis is really exuberant at this stage with fantastic aromas of honeysuckle, salt, chalk and dried apples and pears.
