2016 Cuvee Natalie Estate Chardonnay
The 2016 vintage of Cuvee Natalie is a classic Natalie with color, nose and flavor that makes it instantly distinctive. The wine is clear and bright with a light yellow color and a golden hue at its core. The aromas are of vanilla, citrus, jasmine and honeysuckle with a touch of toastiness. The wine is light and crisp on the palate revealing favors of pear, apple, Meyer lemon, pineapple, peach and apricot. It is tangy and sweet – the tanginess from the acidity in the wine and the sweetness (not from sugar – this is a dry wine) from the fruit flavors. The long finish echoes flavors of baked apple pie and crème brulee.
