Truchard Vineyards is a small, family-owned winery in the Carneros region of Napa Valley. Proprietors Tony and Jo Ann Truchard have managed a successful vineyard and grown exceptional grapes for nearly 40 years. Through their hard work and devotion to this unique property, they helped pioneer grape growing in the Carneros region of Napa. In 1989, the Truchards established a winery and began producing wines using only their estate-grown fruit.
The 2019 Chardonnay has aromas of pineapple, quince and jasmine with hints of nutmeg, fig, and toasted oak. The mouth is clean and bright, filled with fresh flavours of green apple, pear and Meyer lemon. Firm acidity provides a crisp finish of citrus, mineral and spice.
92 Points - James Suckling Lemon-curd, apricot, dried-pineapple and hazelnut aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with crisp acidity and concentrated mineral and dried-fruit flavors. Drink or hold.
92 Points - Wine Enthusiast This white has a lovely mineral-like quality along the lines of salty sea air, with a moderate weight on the midpalate. Bright and complex, it offers well-considered flavors of apple and lime with integrated oak that adds a touch of baking spice.
90 Points - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate The 2019 Chardonnay features compelling notes of spice cake, coriander seed, cashews, and brioche over a core of apple sauce and poached pears. The medium to full-bodied palate is jam-packed with spiced apples flavours and toasty nuances, delivering a lively line of freshness and a savoury/nutty ‑ finish. Delicious Chardonnay at a nice price! Drink Date 2020 – 2024.
