Trefethen Chardonnay Napa Valley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Delightful aromas of citrus, peach and nectarine reflect how Chardonnay thrives in their vineyard in the heart of Napa Valley. The bright fruit is augmented by judicious use of French oak barrels-lending notes of graham cracker and baking spices while enhancing the full-bodied mouthfeel.

One of the superstars of the vintage it boasts an inky/purple color as well as abundant notes of blueberry liqueur graphite truffles acacia flowers and subtle toast. Full-bodied opulent and already easy to drink this large-scaled wine possesses high levels of tannin but they are relatively well-concealed by the extravagant fruit glycerin texture and density of this compelling Troplong Mondot. This impressive wine may shut down after bottling and require 4-5 years of cellaring. It has the potential to last at least 15-20 years. Bravo! From a 63-acre vineyard on the high plateau (called the Plateau of Mondot) adjacent to the famous limestone hillside the Cote Pavie the 2012 Troplong Mondot is another fabulous success. Cropped at 31 hectoliters per hectare with malolactic in barrel this blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon hit 14.2% natural alcohol. Three-fourths of the production went into the grand vin.

Twenty Bench is a wine of great personality, with aromas of fresh red-fruits and blackcurrant scents dominating the nose. It is quick to express itself on the palate with harmonious flavors of cassis, blackberry, cigar box, dark chocolate and vanilla spice.

The combination of barrel and tank fermentation for this wine has resulted in bright, forward aromatics with beautifully balanced fruit and oak. The texture is soft, with round oak tannins and well-integrated acidity. The layers of melon, pear and pineapple are enhanced by rich toasty oak that leads to a long finish.

In 1979, Trefethen 1976 Chardonnay was named Best Chardonnay in the World at the Gault Millau World Wine Olympics in France, beginning our 30-year tradition of excellence with this most popular of white wines.

A juicy, fleshy palate is supported by ripe cherry and blackberry fruit. This is delicately built with fine, lingering tannins - wrapped up in integrated, well seasoned oak. A wine that is ready for immediate enjoyment with a view to cellaring for 7 to 10 years from vintage -Winery

The concentrated blueberry, black plum and cassis notes are supported by fresh acidity, with layers of wildflower, pepper and mineral expanding on the finish. Drink now.

Dusty dark-fruit aromas are lusty and full of oaky notes including sawdust and chocolate. This value-priced winner is full, round, saturated and generous on the palate, where savory, resiny black-fruit flavors finish woody in flavor and firm in feel.
