Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2015 Chardonnay has delicious aromas of lemon, vanilla, freshly baked apple crisp, green apple, and ripe pineapple. These are followed by flavors of lemon curd and crème brûlée complemented by a lingering, mouthwatering acidity. 100% Chardonnay
Vineyard Notes
A warm winter brought an early bud break to the 2015 season in the Central Coast. May was cold, leading to a weak fruit set and a very light crop compared to previous years. However, ample ripening time produced grapes with a beautiful variety of aromas and flavors. The light crop, combined with an early harvest, created stellar-quality fruit.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes for our 2015 Chardonnay were sourced from cool-climate vineyards in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria Valley, and Monterey. 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 the best flavors. The juice was settled overnight. After moving the juice off the solids, yeast was added. The juice was then transferred to 100% French oak barrels (20% new) to ferment. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, lending crispness and aromas of pineapple and green apple. In-barrel fermentation and aging (8 months) softened the mouthfeel, adding a creamy texture and complexity.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with oysters, burrata with honey and grilled peaches, and ricotta stuffed zucchini blossoms
