Drinking Tonight - 2013 Catena Chardonnay

I opened this trustworthy Argentinian Chardonnay with a creamy shrimp dish tonight. 
A tasting sample from VinUnic.

2013 Catena Chardonnay
A fresh, open, nice nose with notes of dried pine apple, yellow apples, butter cookies, summer flowers and a hint of mint. Very good. Young and clean.
The taste is young, fresh and fruity with notes of fried nuts, warm grass, dried tropical fruit and cold butter. A good acidity that cleans the mouth effectively. A very good food wine although I could easily drink it on its own as well. Good stuff.
88p   (tasted 2014/08)
