A beautiful gold color illuminates the glass and aromas of lemon, honeysuckle and pear greet the nose. The fresh palate features more citrus flavors, as well as green apple, and a clean finish. The oak influence in this wine is subtle but important, adding a note of vanilla on the nose and a pleasant roundness on the palate. Another classic vintage of Trefethen Chardonnay!
The clean flavors and bright acidity in this wine allow for wonderful food pairings. Ingredients such as almonds, hazelnuts, tarragon, thyme and lime zest work particularly well. Restrained use of mustard is also a good match. Serve with vegetables, seafood or lighter meats.
