“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.

Like a cool, gentle rain, this is more a textural pleasure than an overtly fruity chardonnay. The fruit that’s there is crunchy, like wild carrots and pale ginger, the texture creamy and broad, with grape-skin tannins enriching the middle. It’s salty and fat in a way that would cozy up to scallop sashimi and pickled ginger.
