Although most of the grape-growing areas of California have the potential to produce a decent Chardonnay, only certain regions have the ability to truly showcase how complex of a varietal it can be. We carefully select vineyards from areas such as Santa Barbara County, the Russian River Valley, and the western reaches of Mendocino County in order to promote the full potential of our Chardonnay’s aroma and palate. These coastal regions similarly tend toward uniform daytime temperatures and cool, foggy nights throughout the growing season to help concentrate the flavor as the sugar and acids develop.
The outstanding quality this harvest has been boasting in our Chardonnays. This elegant wine offers aromas of fresh granny smith apple, lemon custard tart and subtle wildflower honey . The body is clean with fresh acidity balancing cream with notes of bananas foster, and a touch of vanilla on the finish.
