Cuvaison (the producer of this 2014 Cuvaison Carneros Chardonnay) was born in 1969 in California, USA and has since amassed around 600 acres of vineyards across estates located in both Carneros (at the southern end of the Napa Valley) and Mount Veeder. A new, state of the art Cuvaision winery was completed in Carneros in 2004 and it is this winery that produced this 2012 Cuvaison Carneros Chardonnay. Made from only grapes sourced from the Cuvaison Estate in Carneros, this Chardonnay was vinified by Cuvaison winemaker Steven Rogstad using a winemaking approach of minimal intervention. Once the Chardonnay fruit was harvested from the 8-22 year old Chardonnay vines of the Cuvaison Carneros Estate and was fermented, it was passed in to small French oak barrels (25% of which were new) for eight month’s maturation.

2014 vintage added May 2017. In the glass, this wine is a lemon colour of medium intensity. Clearly enriched by time in oak, the colour allows the legs to be seen clearly when it is swirled. 13.5% abv is the declared alcoholic content. Ripe and quite full on the nose, this Chardonnay shows youthful aromas of lemon citrus and ripe white peach, along with notes of vanilla and fresh cream. Carried through to the palate the flavours joined by an attractive nuttiness and a sense of spice (ginger and cinnamon). Texturally smooth and fairly weighty, the wine slides across the palate on limited but sufficient acidity. Showing good intensity, length and complexity, a thoroughly accomplished wine.
