This Friday at the Hopey & Co. Black Mountain, we will be tasting Catena Chardonnay from the vineyards of Family Catena Zapata. Twenty years ago, 3rd and 4th generation vignerons Nicolas and his daughter Laura, embarked on a journey of experimental grape planting and vinting… a true labor of love. Planting in respect to various altitudes and microclimates throughout the valleys of Mendoza, Argentina. This wonderfully horticultural approach to creating world-class wines has paid off. Finding that Chardonnay has it’s best expression and acid structure when grown at 4757 feet above sea level at their Adrianna Vineyard. The beautiful and affordable wine we will be sampling is a blend of grapes hand picked from three of their vineyards to achieve the ripe tropical fruit flavors and rich texture of the La Pirámide vineyard (3117 ft elevation); the white stone fruit and citrus notes of the Domingo Vineyard (3675 f elevation); the lively floral notes, strong mineral character and excellent acidity of the Adrianna vineyard (4757 ft).
