Monterey's cooling fog and Pacific coastal breezes, drawn across the Gabilan Mountains into the Salinas Valley, create an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay, yielding wines with tantalizing tropical notes and crisp acidity. Moderate temperatures lengthen the growing season, allowing fruit to evolve with layers of distinct Central Coast flavors. This wine comes from our 352-acre Shirtail Creek estate vineyard in Monterey.

I'm a Cab drinker and had actually been sent the Chardonnay in error. Wine.com was so nice they let me keep the whites and sent the Cab. I tried the white at a party I was hosting and loved it. The price is amazing.
Pleasant and simple Chardonnay, especially for the price. Nice fruit on the nose and palate, with a good finish. Usually go to Rombauer, but this is a good budget alternative.
