Origin: White Bones Parcel, Adrianna Vineyard, Tupungato, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Producer's Notes: The Adrianna vineyard is located at almost 5,000’ elevation in the Gualtallary sub-district of the Tupungato region. The magic at Adrianna goes beyond the cool climate. Adrianna Vineyard is at the site of a dried river bed, the stony, limestone soils are well drained and the extreme high altitude provides the ideal amount of sunlight and cold. Nicolás Catena thinks that finding the Adrianna Vineyard was more luck than anything else.
White Bones Chardonnay comes from select rows within Block 1 of the Adrianna Vineyard. The name refers to the soil underneath these rows, which is layered with calcareous deposits and limestone as well as fossilized animal bones - remnants of a river that used to pass through the region.
The grapes coming from these rows have distinctive floral aromatics with an earthy minerality in the nose and palate.
