CRU - Fortified Chardonnay
CRU - Fortified Chardonnay


This wine is from 100% estate grown fruit.  Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA). 

Winemaking Notes:

Unique to Trump Winery, Cru is created by blending Chardonnay juice with grape brandy in lieu of a traditional fermentation. This fortified wine is then aged for over a year in American bourbon barrels. The result is an aperitif wine with 14% residual sugar that is truly all-American.

Tasting Notes:

This aperitif has deep fresh aromas, with flavors of pear, citrus, bourbon, and toasted almonds. This blend of 100% Chardonnay juice fortified with Chardonnay brandy is 18% alcohol, so it works equally well neat or as a mixer.
