Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2017 Truchard Chardonnay has a beautiful expression of fruit and structure. Pretty aromas of tropical fruits, nutmeg, and stone offer a glimpse of what’s on the palate. Pear, ripe pineapple, fig and spice combine with a generous minerality inherent to the vineyard. A balanced acidity provides a rich, creamy mouthfeel that is enhanced by the toasty oak, carrying these fruit flavors into a long, lengthy finish.
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 fourteen 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.
