As the undisputed Queen of White Wine, Chardonnay is grown all over our bountiful state. But even wineries in other appellations will admit: Monterey County is Chardonnay country. The cool coastal climate, with morning fogs that often linger until mid-day, allows the intricate fruit flavors to develop while preserving crucial acidity. These just-right conditions place Monterey County on par with the best growing regions of the world. Each vintage, we strive to craft a Chardonnay that allows the beauty of the Monterey AVA to shine. Through the judicious use of oak, we seek to complement, not detract from, the gorgeous tropical fruit flavors that are the hallmark of Monterey Chards. With a fruit-driven core of pineapple, pear and citrus, our 2020 Chardonnay is made in a bright and lively style that strikes the perfect balance between rich and refreshing. Medium-bodied with crisp balanced acidity, it has a lingering finish with hints of butterscotch, vanilla and subtle oak.
