This genuine coastal Chardonnay lends a brilliant clarity and golden, crystalline hue. The fresh hints of clementine and lime construct a mineral-driven, yet succulent wine with a bright natural acidity and linear finish.
The Arroyo Grande Chardonnay fruit comes from vines planted on the Talley Vineyard – just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The vineyard, planted in the early 1980's to the Robert Young heritage clone, is tucked into the lush and diverse valley comprised of loamy-clay soils. The fruit benefits from the cool, marine climate and rich, decomposed oceanic soils that are prevalent in the area.
