Trefethen Chardonnay United States California Napa County White 2009
Another classic from Trefethen. Aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, mango and Fuji apple spiced with hints of tarragon, are lovely in the nose. The palate is lush with citrus and light smoky oak, underscored by bright, crisp mineral qualities, and the finish is lasting, elegant and memorable.
Editorial Reviews for Trefethen Chardonnay United States California Napa County White
Nicely fruity on the nose with early notes of mulberry, black fruits and violet over some limestone notes. Rich, ripe yet transparent on the palate with lively, crisp tannins and an edge of austerity that underpins the mulberry, black raspberry and juniper/forest floor-toned palate. This finishes much more in the red fruit end of the spectrum with currant and cherry fruit lingering over a succulent, sandy soil driven base. Archetypal Chianti. 89pts
Clear and clean aromas of green apple, lemon and sugar. Smooth and flavorful with a complex mix of lemon candy, cream, apple.
Lots of cream and pears in the nose, and a fresh vegetative smell. Light minerally body with some mild buttery notes. Slightly tart finish.
Nice strawberry fruit on the nose which is a contrast to its deep violet hue. Structured and complex, yet with a smooth mouthfeel, subtle tannins and bright acidity
Bright, tart fruit with a balanced acidity, woodsy flavors (pinecone, cedar), good weight and smoothness. Very well balanced.
Overpowering salinity/brine flavor, gets a little better after a half hour in the glass. Light body. Tangy and fruity on the palette followed by an array of interesting tart flavors. Fine tannins. The salinity kills it for me, but lots of people seem to like that.
Enjoy the aroma of apples with a buttery taste. Goes great with our Dominos thin crust and buffalo wings ; )
Good wine subtile and gound all round some black fruit in it
External Reviews for Trefethen Chardonnay United States California Napa County White
An unusually ripe flashy wine from this estate the flagship 2009 I Sodi di San Niccolo graces the palate with exquisite textural finesse and pure energy. In 2009 Sodi is soft seamless and very pretty but the trademark acidity and structure are there too. I imagine the 2009 will drink better young than the vast majority of recent releases and that is a very good thing for those who can t wait. Antonio Galloni.
The exotic, essentially dry (there is some residual sugar), light to medium-bodied, spicy 2001 Gewürztraminer is pure rose water and lychee nuts.
A landmark wine for Tuscany the 2009 I Sodi di S. Niccolo (85-15 Sangioveto and Malvasia Nera) is a deeply sophisticated wine that puts its pedigree on full display both on the bouquet and in the mouth. The quality of the fruit is outstanding and you can distinguish each aromatic descriptor with total clarity
A bountiful floral nose with hints from the tropics and classic lemon citrus notes that lead you into the wine s bright palate. Vibrant mouthfeel with balanced acidity and lemon spice.

Kräftiges Grantatrot, würzige Fruchtaromatik von Zwetschgen, dezente Vanillenoten, gehaltvolle Frucht im Gaumen nach Beeren mit schöner Würzigkeit und leichten Holznoten, gute Struktur und langer Abgang.
