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 beauty of this vineyard shines in the 2014 Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay. Tropical aromas of peach, fig and Meyer lemon lead to flavors of pear, pineapple and vanilla. Toasted oak notes and a hint of minerality complement the fruit. The creamy texture and balanced acidity give weight and richness to the midpalate, which carries its flavors through a long, lingering finish.
