Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Chardonnay has floral aromas with flavors of golden delicious apple and citrus, a silky texture and long finish.

Carmel Road's winemaking team seeks to capture the vibrant, bright flavor profile of Monterey - where the triumvirate of fog, wind and sun forge distinctive wines with vivid complexity, superb acidity and a pronounced minerality that have become the hallmark of Carmel Road wines.

About Carmel Road:

Founded in 1996, Carmel Road's mission is to produce wine showcasing the unique nature of Monterey County terrior. Our debut release, the 1997 Chardonnay, demonstrates the potential of the Monterey County appellation to produce world-class wines. Located just a few miles over the ridges from the Pacific Ocean, Carmel Road produces wines from vineyards set against the Santa Lucia range and in the Gabilan foothills. Under the care of Winemaker Dan Kleck, the fruit emerges in wines exhibiting both a studied elegance and superb richness.
