This is an elegant, classically styled Chardonnay, brimming in structure and a light touch of ripeness. Green apple, stone and apple blossom tones rise to the fore of the nose and palate. It’s low in oak and supple in texture.

The 2018 Trefethen Chardonnay shows the excellence of the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley AVA. This wine is bright, sassy, and lively. Its aromas and flavors of ripe apple, peach skin, and mineral notes should pair it well with a well-seasoned rotisserie chicken.
Aromas of lemon and lime are complemented by a touch of apple blossom and white peach. Subtle notes of toasted oak frame the palate which features more citrus flavors and hints of apple and pear. The lively acidity brings great balance and the finish is refreshing and smooth.
The bright citrus notes of this wine make it a perfect match for shellfish and tarragon. Try a simple dish of salt and pepper shrimp or caramelized jumbo scallops over rice. Also try adding tarragon to fresh goat cheese and enjoy with your favorite torn bread and good friends!
