Trig Point Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016
“A “trig” has been used for many years to establish boundary lines. Trigonometrical stations were set on the top of hills and used as surveying sites. Just as my father was a land surveyor and used these trigs as a reference, so do I when it comes to well known vineyard sites” Nick Goldschmidt, Winemaker.
Trig Point is produced by Nick Goldschmidt and his wife Yolyn. After flying the globe for many years as the head-winemaker for the likes of Simi, Allied Domecq, and Beam Estates, Nick decided to start a family company with his wife Yolyn in 1998. The goal of the company was to focus on site specific wine making from great vineyard sites from around the world. Having produced so many world class wines from around the globe, Nick knew exactly from which vineyard sites he would choose to make his wines.
Trig Point "Sign Post" Chardonnay comes from a vineyard that lies in the cool and breezy area just west of Sebastopol. This growing region produces a wonderfully bright and refreshing style of Chardonnay. Aged for 6 months in oak barrel.
Light straw color; citrus, melon, and wildflower aromas. Shows juicy grapefuit, passion-fruit, and white peach flavors. Bright and lively within a medium-weight frame, low alcohol, and just a touch of oak to add complexity.
