Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This luscious Dijon clone Chardonnay is aged in 100% stainless steel, hence the term “unoaked.” The fermentation in stainless steel preserves all of the intensity of the fruit in this wine. The nose delivers a burst of fresh d’anjou pear, apple and banana custard that evolves into such floral notes as lily of the valley and Calla Lily. The mouthfeel is very round and dominated by fruit and floral notes. A hint of bubble gum lingers on the finish.
Vineyard Notes
The Trio Vineyard sits off the western Yountville bench that is located about 2 miles south of the town of Yountville. Trio Vineyard’s rich, dark soil and warmer mid-valley climate are ideal for Dijon clone Chardonnay. The Deux Chevaux Vineyard is a 60-acre vineyard situated northeast of the town of Yountville. The vineyard is planted with Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc.
