2017 Chardonnay, 50th Anniversary

Winemaker's Notes

In honor of our 50th anniversary, we have crafted a blend from three parcels of our Los Carneros estate vineyard. The combination of Old Wente, Dijon 548 and 809 Chardonnay clones produce a wine with heady notes of white flowers, lemon chiffon, and stone fruit. Tropical tones are enhanced by a palate that is both firm yet yielding, offering mouth-coating richness and complexity. This wine captures the vision we laid out for Cuvaison Chardonnay 50 years ago.
