Catena Zapata 2018

2018 Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard White Stones...$109.99
A very subtle yet intense White Stones on the nose with stone, bone, lemon-rind and dried-apple aromas that follow through to a full body that is very tight and closed, but shows a compact fruit structure of sliced mangoes and cooked apples. Vivid finish, turning to flamboyant minerality. In reserve still. Better in 2022.
Rated 98/100 James Suckling

A perfect wine
2018 Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard White Bones...$134.99

This is really exuberant at this stage with fantastic aromas of honeysuckle, salt, chalk and dried apples and pears. 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
Rated 100/100 James Suckling
