Trefethen Napa Valley Chardonnay, 2015

Trefethen is about as old school as it gets; in fact, the estate's 1976 Chardonnay was named "Best Chardonnay of the World at the Gault Millau World Wine Olympics in France in 1979. From persons who know wine, I have heard nothing but high praise for this winery in the Oak Knoll district of Napa.

Nothing flashy about Trefethen's 2015 Chardonnay. Classy scents of lime and orange blossom integrating nicely with apple oriented Chardonnay fruit. The wine was aged 9 months in French oak, only 20% new. Elegant mouth feel and subtle flavors that linger for several minutes. A real treat.
