Delicious new Chardonnay release from Far Niente's single vineyard Nickel & Nickel winery. Only 250 cases produced. With fragrant orange blossom and floral aromas, juicy tropical fruit and pear top notes, and a subtle minerality, the Nickel & Nickel Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay continues our tradition of crafting 100%-varietal wines from outstanding single-vineyard sites. It's a cornerstone of our single-vineyard Chardonnay collection. The Truchard Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Carneros region benefits from beautiful sun exposure and cool morning and evening fog. Stiling and Medina Vineyards are each located in Russian River Valley, just a half-mile apart. Both vineyards are planted in Goldridge loam and yield distinct wines with classic minerality and fresh fruit flavors that help make some of the best chardonnays including this classic from Nickel & Nickel.
Tropical fruit, mouth coating, smooth mineral finish.

Surprisingly smooth for such a recent vintage. Mild acidic but fruit forward. Not oaky at all.
