This bottle of Trefethen 2012 Harmony Chardonnay was sourced at the winery, just before the big earth quake that devastated many Napa wineries. We were very surprised when we arrived and found two of our favorite wine servers. Adam from Alpha Omega and Angie from Charles Krug. They both left their mother ships and moved to Trefethen. It was great to see them.
We were given a great tour through the gravity fed winery and they introduced us to their whole product line. The winery looked great. During the earth quake, the gravity fed winery was damaged. It is a shame, it was a really good looking and historic building.
To the wine: This bottle of 2012 Harmony Chardonnay is from the Oak Knoll district of Napa valley. The grapes in this Chardonnay were sourced on the estate of Trefethen.
Nose: The nose on this Chardonnay had very nice floral and fruit notes. The nose was medium in intensity and pleasant.
Tasting phase: The tasting phase was pleasant and full of floral and green melon notes. The tasting phase was distinctive and of quality.
Finish: The finish was very mellow and falls away. There was no warmth and pulls lightly from the middle of the tongue. The finish had some nice fruit notes that lingered.
Conclusion: The name on the bottle of Chardonnay is Harmony. This makes sense because this describes this wine very well. Everything had a balance to it and I have purchased another bottle of this wine.
