Cuvaison – Kite Tail Chardonnay 2013 – Carneros – Napa Valley

Cuvaison – Kite Tail Chardonnay 2013 – Carneros – Napa Valley

The nose is aromatic, incisive and racy (terroir). It reveals notes of citrus zest and touches of nectarine associated with slight hints of pear, minerality and an imperceptible hint of flowers. The palate is fruity, suave, relatively gourmand and offers a good definition, fat, a nice frame as well as a nice acid matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pear, nectarine, lemon and fine touches of clementine associated with (very) discreet hints of minerality (terroir) as well as slight touches of quince and honeysuckle. Good length.
