Aromas & Flavors

This is a delicious, full‐bodied Chardonnay with aromas and flavors of Meyer lemon, citrus, apple, graham cracker, creamy marshmallow, peach, apricot, pear, brown sugar and spice. Trè Terre is a wine with bright fruit, nice acidity and a long, lingering finish.

Food Pairings

This wine’s rich fruit component complements mildly spiced vegetarian dishes and rich, creamy shellfish entrées. It also works well with veal, poultry, pasta and rice.

How It's Made

Each lot for this wine is hand harvested, whole‐cluster pressed, then barrel fermented with native and cultured yeast. The wine completes 96% malolactic fermentation and is sur lie aged and stirred weekly for nine months. The final blend was assembled in May 2017, and the wine is barreled again in neutral oak until bottling, for a total of almost 17 months of barrel aging. All vineyard lots are treated separately until blending.

The Vintage

Overall, 2016 was a good year. Spring produced great set, and despite a third year of drought conditions in our area, vines produced ideal yields. Warmer temperatures during the supper months allowed the fruit to achieve mature, ripe flavors.
