2021 Nickel & Nickel Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay, Carneros, Napa Valley
Fragrant, fresh and bright, this Napa Valley Chardonnay is filled with flavors of fresh pear and peach blossom, balanced by cool minerality and a finish that is long and generous.
A fragrant perfume of honeysuckle, tropical pineapple and crushed stone opens onto flavors of fresh pear, peach blossom, and subtle spice. Cool minerality and bright acidity balance the generous, silky palate and lift a finish that is long and full.
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.
