Wine Spots Monterey Chardonnay has crisp acidity and intense tropical fruit, hallmarks of Monterey. Clean toasty notes of sweet oak and vanilla lead to a lively finish. Barrel-fermented in small, French oak barrels and aged sur lie for 12 months.
Monterey, located along the central coast of California, benefits from the Pacific Ocean's morning fog and cool winds. The cool-climate marine influence creates one of the world's longest growing seasons, ideal for producing Chardonnay wines full of character and balanced acidity.
Food Pairings: Enjoy with chicken, pasta dishes with a cream sauce, salmon, seafood and mild cheeses.
