The Winemaking

The Trinitas 2012 Chardonnay is from the Los Carneros appellation of the Napa Valley. Barrel aging in American oak lends to aromas of  hickory , crème brulee and cotton candy. Secondary fermentation creates a mid-palate with rich flavors of creamy butter and caramel. Lemon curd and Charred Pineapple sing with a juicy explosion. 

The Vineyards

Chardonnay from the Carneros region ranks among the finest in California. Due to its ideal location along the San Pablo Bay, the Carneros appellation is recognized for producing grapes of great intensity, balance and natural acidity. Cool, foggy mornings and moderately warm days provide the perfect growing conditions.

The Vintage

The 2011 Vintage was challenging for vintners with rains coming at inconvenient times and a growing season that yielded one of the smallest crops in years. The grapes that did make it in 2011 are good but there is not much out there, so buy up the 2011 wines because they will go quick!
