Winemaker's Notes

The Monterey appellation is one of the most diverse and climatically cool grape growing regions in California. The fog and cooling air from Monterey Bay slow maturity and allow the grapes to develop classic varietal characteristics, and a natural balance between sugar and acidity by harvest time.

This environment has produced a Chardonnay that has flavors of citrus, pear and jasmine with bright acid structure. To preserve these characteristics and retain the purity of the fruit, this wine was crafted using stainless steel tanks for fermentation and aging, and prevented malolactic fermentation.

This is simply a clean, crisp, delicious Chardonnay unfettered by toasty oak or buttery lactic acid flavors.
