2020 Catena 'Appellation-White Clay' Semillon & Chenin Blanc Lujan de Cuyo

$23.95

Dr. Laura Catena is well known for her pioneering role in high-altitude viticulture in Argentina, and this unexpected white is a beautiful example. 60% Semillon with 40% Chenin Blanc, it’s a deeply aromatic wine with expressive notes of citrus and peach leading to a rich and mineral finish. This blend has been the traditional white wine of Argentina for a century, and we’re happy to have it stateside in time for sunshine.

James Suckling

Peach-skin, apricot, dried-lime and flint aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with sharp acidity that cuts through creamy layers of ripe fruit. Intense, mineral and smoky finish. Semillon and chenin.
