Product Description

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.

The 2016 Nickel & Nickel Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay exudes floral aromas of jasmine and orange blossom while flavors of peach, pear, and tropical fruits fill the palate. Because the grapes from this vineyard produce a richer mouthfeel and great acidity in the wine, malolactic fermentation is not necessary. Creamy and toasty oak highlights provide a balanced overtone.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Chardonnay
Appellation: Carneros AVA, Napa Valley
Aging: 10 months, French oak, 47 percent new, 53 percent once-used
