Our delicious Chardonnay comes from grapes grown at the foothills of the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County. They meticulously farm this vineyard to maximize quality. The 2022 growing season in the Monterey area was stellar – warm during the day, cool at night, allowing for a long hang time on the vine. The beautiful straw color of this decadent, yet focused wine starts with hints of green apple with apricot and ripe peach following. The rich creamy texture has notes of buttered popcorn with a finish that is rich & full with toasted oak notes.
Drink this with grilled fish in the summer or Dungeness crab with clarified butter in the fall or winter.
Vineyards from this area produces grapes of incomparable depth and flavor. The grapes were hand-picked at the peak of flavor and pressed within hours of harvest to ensure the flavor was maintained.
