2018 Nickel & Nickel "Truchard Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay

SKU #1447288

Nickel & Nickel specializes in single-vineyards wines, and this one, from Truchard Vineyard in Carneros exemplifies why. It has the ripe California style, with pear, lemon and tropical fruit, but balanced by cooler climate acidity, which also allows a subtle minerality to come through. There's a layer of vanilla cream from barrel fermentation that adds depth and texture to the wine, but since the wine doesn't go through malolactic fermentation, it's still refreshing. From the winery: "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. This vineyard is predominately a neutral, gravelly loam from the Felton soil series, which are well-drained soils formed from weathered sandstone and shale. This wine shows the classic style of Carneros Chardonnay."
