The cool coastal climate of Monterey, with morning fogs that often linger until midday, allows 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. We chose to let the beauty of the Monterey AVA shine by producing our Isabelle’s Vineyard Chardonnay in an unoaked, Chablis-like, Old World style — allowing the gorgeous tropical fruit flavors that are the hallmark of Monterey Chards to reside front and center.

Our 2023 Isabelle’s Vineyard Chardonnay has a pure fruit-driven core of green apple, pear and citrus highlighted by refreshing acidity. Lean, elegant and bright, its flavors are vivid and juicy and the mouthfeel is crisp and zesty.

Wine Profile
Vineyard
Isabelle’s Vineyard is a picturesque, densely planted 2½-acre vineyard named after Al Scheid’s mother, Isabelle Adolphin Pearce. Located on River Road at the base of the Santa Lucia Mountains just south of Salinas, its cool and exposed terrain provides a perfect locale for growing tightly-structured Chablis-style Chardonnay.
Varietal Composition
100% Chardonnay
Winemaking
The grapes for this wine were hand-harvested and delivered to the winery in the early morning. Upon arrival the grapes were whole-cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures. The slow and cold fermentation process enhances the varietal aromatics and retains a refreshing, fruit forward component to the wine. After fermentation, the wine was racked clean and aged in 100% stainless steel for six months prior to bottling
