Kistler Trenton Road House Chardonnay 2014
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
The 2014 Chardonnay Trenton Roadhouse is youthfully shy, offering glimpses at lemon zest, yuzu and grapefruit notes with a touch of crushed stones. Medium-bodied, very fine and elegant in the mouth, it has compelling citrus intensity with a touch of phenolic texture and minerals on the long finish.
This classy version combines the best of rich, coastal California Chardonnay with Burgundian techniques, rendering a creamy, multifaceted wine, with layers of fig, melon, anise, toasty oak, hazelnut and poached pear. Drink now through 2022. 830 cases made.
The 2014 Chardonnay Trenton Roadhouse is one of the more delicate wines in this range. Orchard fruit, lemon confit, white flowers and mint shape this attractive, understated Chardonnay. I would prefer to drink the 2014 over the next few years, while the fruit remains vibrant. This is an exceptionally polished Chardonnay from Kistler.
