Kuleto Estate Chardonnay Napa Valley 2009
Our Chardonnay has a heady citrus aroma and quenching grip as a result. Partial malolactic means a higher finished acidity and minimal new oak keeps all grape and vineyard flavors at the forefront of the wine. This adds up to a wine that is evocative of place and beautifully balanced for the table.
Editorial Reviews for Kuleto Estate Chardonnay Napa Valley
Lightly toasty on the nose with intense notes of lemon oil, bitter orange marmalade and, tropical fruits and anis emerging from the glass. Nice and bright on entry with a soft richness that barely contains the bright fruit, acid, and subtle hint of wood tannin. While not for the faint of heart this is well balanced and finishes with an intense, full throttle dose of rich, almondy, very ripe orchard fruit. Shows a bit of heat on the finish. 91pts
