2021 Fidelis Chardonnay, Stanly Ranch Vineyard, Napa Valley
92 Points James Suckling | 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Introducing our first-ever Fidelis Chardonnay, crafted by our winemaker Kale Anderson with our Fidelis allocation members in mind. Sourced exclusively from the Stanly Ranch vineyard in South Napa, this limited production wine is a true testament to our dedication to excellence and represents the pinnacle of Trinitas winemaking.
Fermented and aged in 100% new French oak, only three barrels were carefully selected by Winemaker Kale Anderson to ensure the highest quality. The wine's distinctive aromatics include notes of stone fruits, lime sorbic, white flower, and citrus zest, rounded out by delectable vanilla and caramelized taste from the oak.
The Fidelis Chardonnay has a full-bodied and rich texture, with a juicy and expressive taste on the palate. This is an elegant expression of the unique terroir of our Stanly Ranch Vineyard, showcasing beautiful flavors and aromas that are sure to delight your senses.
"Aromas of lemon curd and glazed apricots with vanilla, hazelnuts and honey. Full-bodied, dense and viscous with fresh acidity and a sleek, polished mid-palate with some crunchy stone fruit flavors. Toned, citrusy finish." 92 Points, James Suckling
"Bold butter and butterscotch flavors flood this full-bodied, richly textured wine from first sniff to the lingering, buttery finish. It feels mouth filling and soft and could be paired with equally buttery dishes. Allow time to remove the thick wax capsule before serving." 92 points, Jim Gordan - Wine Enthusiast
