Nickel & Nickel Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay 2018
Since 1997, Nickel & Nickel has focused on producing single-vineyard, single varietal Napa Valley wines from the appellation’s most significant AVAs. Owned by Far Niente, it is located in Oakville, Napa Valley. The process of selecting a site to produce a single-vineyard wine is of paramount importance. Every aspect of a vineyard must meet the Nickel & Nickel standards, including the soil, rootstock, clonal selection, exposure and farming practices. The viticulture team farms with precision, based on what is required for each site to achieve the purest expression of its place. The process reveals how vineyards that are in some cases less than a mile apart and growing the same varietal, may produce wines of remarkably different character.
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.
