Our Monterey Chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel, keeping the wine clean
and crisp—just like our favorite Chablis. The cool, breezy weather of Monterey Bay allows for a longer period of maturation
which allows the grapes more time to develop classic varietal characteristics.
The climate produces a Chardonnay with aromas of orange blossom, green apple,
and citrus and with a bright acid structure. The vineyards of Monterey consistently provide ideal fruit and exemplify our
winemaking goal: a natural balance between sugar and acidity. Because of the low
yields from this vintage, the fruit had intensified aromas and flavors, creating a
more full-bodied, weighty wine.
