At almost 5,000 feet elevation in the Andean foothills, the Adrianna vineyard’s calcareous soils and cool climate are the promised land of Chardonnay. The fruit from the Adrianna vineyard has a purity of flavors and a minerality that is particular to this vineyard and cannot be found anywhere else in Mendoza. The nearby, gravel-covered Domingo Vineyard makes up 20% of the blend.
Whole clusters are pressed, and then 100% fermented in 500 L French oak barrels with natural yeasts at low temperatures. 12-24 days fermentation. Battonage (low regime). Wild yeasts. 30% does not undergo malolactic fermentation. Aging: 14 months in French oak (in contact with the lees). Barrels of First, Second and Third use.

Catena Alta is an assemblage of historic rows within the Catena family State vineyards. The blend of these historic rows, like the combination of sounds that create a symphony, gives us highly aromatic and elegant wine that speaks for the terroir and the vines that have been tended by the four generations of the Catena Family. “Alta” means high in Spanish. This makes reference to the high altitude vineyards from where the grapes are sourced, and to the high end wines that are produced with this special grapes.
The parcel has just arrived! Thanks again, it was great doing business with you. Everything was very well packed. I will come back to you when my current stock is finished.
All the best

On behalf of AFPOP EA thank you for a great wine tasting. Some interesting wines and ports… some of the ports surprised me as I’m not necessarily a port drinker. Rita was excellent… very easy to listen to and the wines were very easy to drink! Your team were fabulous… nibbles great… overall a successful wine tasting event. Once again, thank you and I’m sure we will see you again soon.
