Since 1969, Cuvaison has helped define the modern era of Napa Valley winemaking and has played a key role in introducing luxury Napa Valley Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to the world. An early pioneer of the Los Carneros region, Cuvaison has championed vibrant and vineyard-driven expressions of exceptional cool-climate wines.
In 2012, Cuvaison was honored by Wine & Spirits as one of the “Top 100 Wineries on the World.”
A long, cool growing season, ideal for cool climate varieties, delivered wines of structure, focus and shimmering elegance. This 2018 Estate Chardonnay delights with notes of hazelnut, honeysuckle, apricot and quince. The hints of brioche and vanilla surf a wave of citrusy, bright fruit and a long, creamy finish.
"This has attractive, orchard-fruit aromas with a gently mealy edge. The palate has attractively fresh and easygoing pear flavors. Drink now." 90 pts, James Suckling
