A lovely white wine blend.

4.1

The Trefethens are one of the pioneering families of Napa Valley and some of the most experimental winegrowers in California. This limited-production blend of Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc is beautifully fragrant and refreshing.

The Vintage

The preceding winter, which marked our second consecutive drought year, featured the lowest rainfall total in our entire history, going back to 1968. The vines grew vigorously during the warm and dry spring as the vineyard team did an excellent job with early weed control and irrigation. The summer months, from June through September, were all cooler than average, which slowed down the ripening process and allowed for fantastic flavor development. The yields were lower than usual, given the drought conditions, but the resulting wines are all excellent and reflect our unique location in the Oak Knoll District at the cooler southern end of Napa Valley.

The Wine

This white wine blend bursts with floral aromas of jasmine and lemon verbena. On the palate, fresh honeydew melon and crisp apple are layered with tropical notes of lychee and white guava. The slightly sweet finish is balanced by delightfully bright acidity.

Food Affinities

This wine pairs beautifully with fresh herbs, seafood, green vegetables, tart fruits, and goat cheese. Chef Chris suggests pairing Quandary with his Meyer Lemon Couscous Tabbouleh.
