Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2014 Chardonnay has delicious aromas of lemon, vanilla, baked apple crisp, orange, and grapefruit that are complemented by mouthwateringly fresh acidity and lingering citrus flavors.

90% Chardonnay, 10% Mix of Pinot Gris, Malvasia Bianca, and Viognier
Vineyard Notes
From Santa Barbara County to Monterey, our Chardonnay vineyards are exposed to a variety of climate and soil conditions ultimately leading to a spice rack of different aromas and flavors. Grapes for our 2014 Chardonnay were sourced from cool climates in Santa Barbara County, Santa Maria Valley, and Monterey.
Winemaker Notes
All of the grapes were picked in the early morning hours to assure they arrived cool at the winery. The grapes were then delivered direct to press and gently squeezed to maintain aromatics and best flavors. The juice was settled overnight. After moving the juice off the solids, yeast was added. Thirty percent of the Chardonnay blend was tank fermented to allow for crisp, clean attributes. The other 70% was barrel fermented in 100% French oak (20% new) for added complexity, plus creaminess and texture in the mouthfeel. After 8 months of aging, both tank and barrel components were brought together to make the final blend.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with smoked Gouda and Gruyere cheeses, oysters, and chicken Dijon.
