Producer Tasting Notes

Nose: baked croissant, apricot, lemon/lime and honeysuckle. Palate: Round and creamy, notes of lemon squares and fresh natural acidity.


Vineyard Notes

Forty minutes south of Monterey, California, the Santa Lucia Highlands is known for having ideal growing conditions for chardonnay. Cooling breezes of Monterey Bay enable a slower ripening of the grapes, leading to an extended growing season and wine of heifhtened complexity and intense flavors.


Ageing

A mix of new and used French oak barrels for about 11 months. A portion goes through malolactic fermentation to ensure a firm acidity while hand stirring of the barrels imparts a creamy texture.
