The Vintage

Much of our winter rain came late, with almost 12 inches in March alone. With a very warm spring, the vines were running about three weeks early heading into the summer months. July and August were cooler than average, with foggy mornings, mild sunny afternoons and no severe heat spells. Vineyard temperatures rose again in September and harvest dates were early by about two weeks. The heat in the spring and again in the fall provided welcome bookends to the mild summer. The grapes benefited from increased hang time and showed fantastic character development.

The Wine

Rich pineapple flavors highlight a creamy and smooth entry and continue through the end. With classic Trefethen brightness, the finish is fresh with layers of citrus and ripe tropical fruits.

Clonal Composition

92% Hens and Chicks 7% Wente Musque 1% Clone 76

Food Affinities

This Chardonnay is best with delicate but rich food featuring almonds, hazelnuts, chopped tarragon or lemon thyme. Focus on richer fish dishes, pork, chicken and anything in a mushroom cream sauce.
