CATENA CATENA - Zapata Adrianna Vineyard Chardonnay White Stones - 2016

CATENA Zapata Adrianna Vineyard Chardonnay White Stones 2016

94 Points

White Stones is always sourced from the alluvial soils of Lot 1 in an old riverbed. Peachy, ripe and textured, with subtle oak, hints of tangerine and baking spices and a zesty, limestone edged finish, it’s got more acidity than you think at first. One of two superb Chardonnays from the Adrianna site.
