* 2008 TOR Torchiana Chardonnay
TOR Kenward Family Wines Cuvee Torchiana Chardonnay, Napa Valley, USA 2008
Big orange marmalade, pineapple, and honeyed lemon-like aromas jump from the glass of this full-bodied, in-your-face, exuberant Chardonnay. Good acidity, (RP)
Steve Beresini’s old vine Chardonnay vineyard was introduced to us in 2008 by Larry Hyde, one of his oldest friends in the Napa Valley. The Beresini Vineyard is located in the very south section of Carneros Napa, which is heavily influenced by fog. It was planted three decades ago with cuttings that Larry gave Steve. We call this plant material Hyde Selection Wente Clone.
