Trefethen Estate Chardonnay

Trefethen Estate Chardonnay

Eugene Trefethen and his wife Catherine purchased 600 acres in 1968 to create Trefethen Vineyards. At the time, there were fewer than 20 wineries in Napa Valley which put the Trefethens in a small group of wine families dedicated to a vision of crafting world class wines from Napa Valley. Their son, John, and his wife, Janet, were the driving force in turning the estate into a working winery. John led production and Janet travelled the globe promoting Trefethen wines; giving her very deep rooted connections in the UK. Their first wine was released in 1973. At the 1979 Gault Millau World Wine Olympics, their 1976 Chardonnay earned "Best Chardonnay in the World" honours.

Often referred to as the sweet spot of Napa Valley, Trefethen's two estate vineyards are located in the Oak Knoll District- known for the largest range of individual microclimates within an appellation thus allowing Trefethen to grow a diverse range of varietals. Rich fruit, crafted in an elegant, age-worthy manner are the hallmarks of the Trefethen style. The third generation is now active with Loren and Hailey poised to put their generation's stamp on the Trefethen credo of 'One Family, One Estate, One Passion.'

Tasting Notes

Aromas of lemon and lime are complemented by a touch of apple blossom and white peach. Subtle notes of toasted oak frame the palate which features more citrus flavours and hints of apple and pear. The lively acidity brings great balance and the finish is refreshing and smooth.

The bright citrus notes of this wine make it a perfect match for shellfish and tarragon. Try a simple dish of salt and pepper shrimp or caramelized jumbo scallops over rice. Also, try adding tarragon to fresh goat cheese and enjoy with your favourite torn bread and good friends!

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
