The 2018 Nickel & Nickel Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay is beautiful and refined. This wine offers generous ripe fruit, yet stays fresh and lively in the finish. Its aromas and flavors of stone fruit and peach fuzz should pair nicely with shellfish in decadent cream sauces. (Tasted: September 5, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
The 2018 Truchard Chardonnay is a beautiful marriage of youthful vibrance and refined elegance. Gorgeous aromas of tropical fruits, citrus and wet stone leap from the glass with the very first swirl. The same tropical and citrus notes follow on the palate, with pear, peach blossoms, and a touch of spice to round out the flavor profile. This wine is weighty, with an oily-textured component that is inherent to the vineyard. A harmonious mix of acidity and volume, this wine is full and fresh.
