Proprietors Timm and Sharon Crull have quite a special piece of land in Rutherford. Not only are they virtually across the street from Quintessa and next door to Heitz, they also sell their Cabernet to such prestigious wineries as Nickel and Nickel, as well as Frank Family. While we have been touting their reds for some time, they also have a refreshing white.

The property at The Terraces is more conducive to red grapes, so Timm and Sharon went "down the road" to Trefethen to find fantastic Chardonnay grapes. This southern valley floor vineyard has deep alluvial soils and warm temperatures, allowing the grapes to develop ripe stone fruit and pineapple aromas. This is a cleaner style; all tank fermented, no malolactic, and aged sur lie in neutral oak barrels for 7 months.

With a pale yellow hue and aromas of yellow apple, D'Anjou pear, pineapple, and a hint of sweet woody vanilla the 2018 Chardonnay is a Terraces favorite. The palate has bright acidity, with complex flavors of fresh green apple, peach, tropical fruit, light toasty oak, and wet stone. The vibrant mouthfeel showcases surprising weight and richness with a lingering finish. Drink now or cellar for 8-10 years.
