The 2002 vintage of the Catena Chardonnay promises to be our best effort to date. The wine shows a light golden color with marked greenish hues. The nose offers white stone and citrus fruit aromas interwoven with light notes of vanilla and slate. The mouthfeel is full and clean with pear and fig fruit flavors and a touch of sweet spice. The finish is fresh yet persistent, with bright, crisp acidity.
