Truchard Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
A beautiful nose of fresh pear, pineapple, and jasmine with hints of nutmeg, fig, and toasted oak. The mouth is clean and bright, filled with flavors of baked apple, lemon, and lime. Firm acidity provides a crisp finish of citrus, mineral, and spice.
A ripe yet nicely balanced, almost tropical effort, the 2018 Chardonnay has lots of melon and pineapple notes, hints of honeyed bread, medium body, and a clean, enjoyable texture. Drink it over the coming 2-3 years.
Custardy accents grace the Gala apple and pear tart flavors, accented by oaky notes. Hints of dried mint emerge on the spicy finish. Drink now.
