The 2017 Treana Chardonnay is bright and straw-colored, with aromas of fresh apricot, white peach and nectarine with orange blossom, caramel and vanilla. On the palate,the Chardonnay is crisp, with a bright entry highlighted by ripe tropical and citrus fruits. The mid-palate is clean with hints of guava, Mandarin orange, toasted caramel, and crème brulee, while the long finish is marked by racy acidity and a chalky-minerality.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast - Rich with gooey marshmallow, crème brûlée and cotton candy aromas, this is an unabashed classic California Chardonnay from Austin Hope. Unctuous marzipan and sea salt caramel flavors make for a creamy mouthfeel, and yet firm acidity leaves the midpalate feeling clean, allowing butterscotch tones to linger on the finish.
