2004 Bodega Catena Zapata Alamos Chardonnay
Mendoza, Argentina

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%
Price at time of purchase: $7.99 (K&L)
 
Type: Chardonnay
Principal varietal(s): Chardonnay

The best $7.99 Chardonnay on earth? This resembles a $20 Chardonnay with its focused, rich, buttery pear and tropical fruits married to a perfect level of lively, balancing acidity and the right level of spicy oak. Has none of the bland, over-reaching flabbiness of so many other inexpensive Chardonnays. This is the real article and the best Argentine white I've ever tasted. - HK 2005-11-02
