ryansnyder reviewed Bodega Catena Zapata Chardonnay Mendoza 2003 on June 25, 2005
Baked apple and pear are joined by subtle hints of vanilla bean from the French oak it was aged in. The finish is smooth apple custard that lingers for quite a while. This wine shows a certain sophistication that has previously been missing from other Mendoza Chardonnays.
