Tasting Notes

This full-bodied wine exhibits classic varietal characteristics with aromas of toasted oak and crème brûlée. The entry is fruit driven with hints of lemon cream, Fuji apple, ripe pineapple and baked pear, leading to a rich and creamy mid-palate. Finishing clean with lingering acidity and broad texture, the wine is a beautiful example of Monterey County Chardonnay.

Vineyard Notes

Predominantly sourced from vineyards in the Central part of the Salinas Valley, around King City. This area sees relatively warm temperatures early in the day but in the afternoon, cooling breezes off the Pacific Ocean funnel down the valley moderating the temperature. The soils range from decomposed granite to sandy loam but are overall very free-draining and devigorating.
