At Chamisal Vineyards, we consider ourselves artisans – coaxing our wines from the earth and honing each vintage into an expression of the wild and inspiring beauty of the Central Coast. This vision to craft something authentic to the land guides our commitment to sustainable and regenerative agriculture.
At Chamisal Vineyards, we have a storied legacy of making some of the finest Pinot Noir in San Luis Obispo County. The cool climate and soils of our estate vineyard have made it a premier site to grow exceptional and distinctive Pinot Noir that is often characterized by our signature “Chamisal Spice.”
Morrito is one of the first Pinot Noir blocks harvested and has been our most limited and sought after Pinot Noir since its inception in 2003. It’s incredibly expressive on the nose with notes of black currant, cherry, anise, and a touch of cedar.
A constantly evolving selection of Chardonnays sourced from exceptional vineyards in premier AVA’s along California’s Central Coast that are selected for quality and for their ability to express a different facet of these varieties as a counterpoint to the wines from our estate vineyard.
Produced in a lightly oxidative style, the wine features notes of honey, apples, citrus zest and white flowers on the nose. On the palate, the wine is fresh, zippy, and bright with layers of pear and biscuit notes and a slick of minerality on the finish that serves as a reminder of the calcareous soils found in our estate that are not too dissimilar to the limestone and chalk soils found in Champagne.
