Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2005!
Chardonnay is planted throughout the southern part of the Truchard Estate Vineyard. The various marine soils and cooler temperatures make the Carneros region ideal for growing Chardonnay. Grapes are harvested cold then whole cluster pressed. The wine is barrel fermented in French oak, and aged on the lees for 10 months. These techniques produce a complex, full-bodied wine with a delicate structure. The 2003 Chardonnay has a floral nose of tropical fruit, fresh pear, and lemon zest; highlighted with honeysuckle, vanilla, and spice. The mouth is creamy - filled with intense flavors of Eureka lemon, apple, honey, and fig. Bright acidity provides a lengthy finish of citrus, mineral, and toasted oak.
"Tony and Jo Ann Truchard own 270 acres of vineyards in Carneros, where they grow 10 different grape varieties. They sell most of their grapes, reserving 20 percent for their own wines, which can rank among California's best. This year their Chardonnay rises to the top. Sedimentary soils and cooler temperatures make the Carneros region ideal for growing Chardonnay. 1,059 cases made."-Wine Spectator
Truchard Vineyards is a family-owned and operated winery in the Carneros region of the Napa Valley. Varietals produced are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Syrah. In 1974, the Truchards began planting their own vineyards, which now number 270 acres.
Technically a part of Napa Valley, the Carneros region straddles both Sonoma & Napa counties. It's the Napa region closest to the San Francisco peninsula and the San Pablo Bay, which is instrumental in controlling the climate of the area. The winds from the San Pablo bay create a cool weather pattern ideal for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
