Our 2011 Chardonnay explores the mineral driven side of Chardonnay with taut green apple, white peach , lime zest and kiwi fruit. Hints of Ginger and vanilla back the bright jasmine and orange blossom notes but what really drives the wine is the vibrant structure and terrific finish that carry flavors for a long, satisfying ride.
The Cuvaison Estate Chardonnay is a 100% estate grown wine that represents the unique and certified sustainable vineyard site which is our home in the heart of Carneros. Each wine is meticulously hand-crafted from vineyard blocks that have been vinified separately, chosen by Winemaker Steve Rogstad for the distinct characteristics each brings to the final blend. Complex, multi-layered and highly nuanced, our estate wines represent uncompromised farming and winemaking from vine to bottle.
