Aromatics of lime, vanilla, Meyer lemon, and wet stone jump out of the glass and give the bouquet great character and depth. The nose finishes with a sweet note of honey which rounds out the fruit. The Russian oak builds a solid core that is full and round.
The bouquet is delicate yet rich displaying delicious toasted marshmallows, vanilla bean, and the classic Trinitas signature Butterscotch. The mouthfeel on the Chardonnay is full and broad. The creamy texture coats your mouth and leads to a lengthy finish.
