Trefethen Harmony Oak Knoll District of Napa Chardonnay, 2013

Many Napa Chardonnays come from Carneros, but this wine demonstrates that the Oak Knoll District is also prime Chardonnay country. The Trefethen family were pioneers in Napa, and the estate still has a well deserved following. This 2013 is mature and beautiful.

Bright yellow, still youthful looking. Elegant scents of lemon creme, pear, honeysuckle and a hint of caramel. More elegance on the palate. Focused, well defined Chardonnay fruit, minerals, vibrant acidity. No toast or butter. Reminds me of some of the better Oregon Chardonnays.
