As one of the pioneering families of Napa Valley and some of the most experimental winegrowers in California, the Trefethens are generally an open-minded bunch. But when the winemaker presented John and Janet with an unlikely blend of Chardonnay, Riesling and Viognier, they thought he had finally had a little too much to drink. Until they tasted it, of course. Beautifully fragrant and refreshing, this vintage of Quandary was produced in a limited quantity.The Vintage
The spring was warm and dry, getting the vines off to an early start. The weather stayed warm throughout the summer but was free of damaging heat spells. September brought a classic Napa Valley autumn with warm days and very cool nights. With the consistent warmth, the harvest began about two weeks early and we had a very busy September. The beautiful growing season resulted in truly exceptional wines—full of ripe flavors, developed in the sunshine, and balanced by natural acidity from the cool nights.The Wine
Peach and apple aromas fill your nose. Tropical flavors of orange and pineapple fill the palate before ending with a clean and crisp finish.Food Affinities
An ideal picnic, patio, pool and back porch sipping wine. It pairs well with crispy spring rolls, orange peel chicken and seafood, poultry or vegetarian dishes.
