2009 Cutting Horse Vineyard Chardonnay

This limited release wine is a tribute to the sport of Cutting, with a percentage of the sales going to NCHA charities and Colorado State University for equine medical research. According to Janet Trefethen, an avid cutter, “This is a wonderful way to enjoy a great wine and give support to the equestrian community at the same time.”

The Trefethen family is renowned for its Napa Valley Estate Grown Wines. Theirs is a rich agricultural heritage with a passion for winemaking. Nearly everyone in the family is a top-ranked cutter, so it only seems fitting to integrate these two life-long pursuits.

The Vintage

2009 was an excellent, even-keeled vintage in Napa Valley. Consistently mild weather throughout the growing and harvest seasons resulted in stress-free vines, long grape hang times, and fruit with finely developed flavors at lower-than-normal sugar levels.
