Catena Chardonnay 2020

Size: 750ml

Vinous: 91, James Suckling: 92, Wine Advocate: 90

"The Catena Chardonnay combines the unique expressions of three high altitude vineyard sites. The wine shows an intense greenish color with yellow notes. The extraordinary combination of these vineyards offer honey and tropical fruit flavors while lending notes of citrus, pears, peaches, and white flowers with a strong minerality and a delicated note of vanilla. The mouthfeel is clean, with a fresh, clean acidity." —winemaker

"Ripe peach, dried mango, dried jasmine and buttered toast. It’s full-bodied with crisp acidity. Concentrated layers of ripe and dried fruit and a vivid, subtly smoky finish. Drink or hold." —James Suckling

"The 2020 Chardonnay Catena is 90% from the Uco Valley, fermented with whole bunches and aged for up to eight months in barrels. Yellow with a golden sheen. The expressive nose presents notes of linden blossom, apple, creamed corn and hazelnuts. In the mouth, it’s unctuous and indulgent but also has decent tension, a terse texture and long-lasting, bold flavors. The oak reappears on the rather concentrated aftertaste." —Vinous

"The medicinal and balsamic 2020 Catena Chardonnay has pungent aromas of bay leaf and white flowers and a dry and balanced palate with some chalky sensations and tasty flavors. It has moderate ripeness for a warm and dry year like 2020 and good freshness. 282,000 bottles produced. It was bottled between October and November 2020." —Wine Advocate

Aberlour Double Cask Matured 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky Size: 750ml

21547
"As with most Aberlour whisky, this 12-year-old single malt has been matured in two types of cask. This double casking adds depth of character as well as balanced notes of fruits and spices. Golden amber colour with hints of ruby red. Very soft and rounded nose with fruity notes of red apples. Sherried character and fruity aromas on the palate balanced with a rich chocolate, toffee, cinnamon and ginger spiciness. Warming and lingering finish. Sweet and very slightly spicy." —producer

Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc Size: 750ml

"It all starts in our Marlborough vineyards, in the region famous for introducing elegant, cool climate New Zealand wines to the world. Marlborough’s warm days and cool nights create an extended growing season allowing the grapes to develop strong, intense varietal characteristics whilst maintaining a balanced, crisp natural acidity. The result is a distinct wine that is always crisp, elegant, and refreshing. Uniquely Marlborough and undeniably Oyster Bay." —winemaker
