How it's made
Fruit comes from a vineyard in Monterey, California’s Central Coast region. The Chardonnay vineyard has its own AVA, San Bernabe and sits next to a chain of hills which separate the vineyards from the Pacific coast. Chardonnay benefits from the cooler evenings this region enjoys helping to maintain natural freshness. After careful selection fruit is pressed gently in a bladder press before fermentation in stainless
steel. 20% of the blend is aged for 6 months in new and used French oak.
This wine wants buttery chicken, pork tenderloin or a mushroom stroganoff.
This is a modern CA Chardonnay, on the nose there is an appealing salinity over toasted hazelnut aromas. The palate has a stone fruit and struck match structure to it that gives it a gentle minerality.
