Cuvaison Chardonnay 2013
Wine EnthusiastCrisp, yet fuller bodied, with a creamy voluptuousness to the mouthfeel, this wine offers a taste of lemon pith and peach, accented by a floral bouquet of orange blossom. Measured acidity keeps it ebullient in the glass, ending in a hit of Tahitian vanilla.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Chardonnay Estate exhibits a judicious use of smoky oak, green apple skins and a hint of tropical fruit in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style. The acids are tangy and the wine is well-balanced. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
Wine SpectatorShows a touch of oxidized apple skin and similar mature flavors that are a little off-kilter. Drink now. 15,000 cases made.
