Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2012 Truchard Chardonnay is a beautiful expression of what this vineyard has to offer. Peach, apple, and tropical fruits pair nicely with the vanilla and toasty oak from the barrels. Its creamy mouthfeel and balanced acidity create a lovely texture that carries the fruit from start to the finish, creating a wine of perfect proportions.
Vineyard Notes
Truchard Vineyard lies in the heart of Carneros, prized for its rolling hills, sun exposure and cool, breezy conditions that allow long, even ripening. Nickel & Nickel makes wine from eight select acres of this 270-acre vineyard, composed of volcanic ash and rock with a southwestern exposure. The growing season tends to be long in this cooler area, allowing for fully mature fruit at harvest.
