Overview of the Wine
Great wines begin in the vineyard. Our vision is to make rich and unforgettable wines that are true to the special place they come from. The story of Catena is the story of Argentine wine.

Founded in 1902, Argentina’s Bodega Catena Zapata is known for its pioneering role in resurrecting Malbec and in discovering extreme high altitude terroirs in the Andean foothills of Mendoza.

Over the years, Nicolás Catena Zapata discovered the influence altitude has on fruit quality. As one climbs the altitudes of the Andes the average temperature decreases and the amplitude between day and night temperatures increases.

This environment provides the ideal climate for grape maturation. Each of the Catena Zapata family vineyards is divided into parcels according to their soil composition. These parcels are farmed individually, with an eye on encouraging their most authentic fruit expression.

Grape / Blend
60% Semillón and 40% Chenin Blanc

Origin
Mendoza, Argentina

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Catena Appellation Luján de Cuyo White Clay is deeply aromatic with expressive citrus and peach, minerality, and a rich finish.

This blend of Semillon and Chenin Blanc pairs well with vegetables, pasta, and grilled white meats.
