This wine has always been one of the outstanding performers in the Cuvaison portfolio and year after year is a wine that never ceases to impress. It is also one of those Chardonnays that makes you rethink Chardonnay because it is so beautifully balanced, so definitely handled, that it surpasses what most of us know about Chardonnay. Yes you’ll find light lemon-lime, green apple, kiwi, guava notes, but also viscosity and minerality. It also possesses a slight resin and stone fruit quality and maturity of fruit. That these vines are just 20 years old suggests there are great vintages ahead. All the necessary elements of a terrific wine come together in Kite Tail. A partial malolactic fermentation, and partial oak aging makes it creamy while there is still an abundance of flavors and acidity to work with food. ORIGIN: Napa Valley/Los Carneros. ALCOHOL: 14.1%
