Mark West Central Coast Chardonnay focuses mainly on vineyards from the Monterey area known for their coastal foggy mornings and warm afternoons and cooling evening breezes. Our Winemaker Alex Cose also selects fruit from the warmer Santa Barbara area that traditionally imparts a tropical note to the wine.
Our lighter-styled wine shows Monterey flavor attributes of juicy pear and crisp apple complemented by subtle cinnamon, nutmeg
and vanilla from oak aging. Accompanying Central Coast deep tropical fruit flavors of papayas and mangoes continue from beginning to its Refreshing finish.
Mark West Chardonnay tends to capture the attitude of its Central Coast origin; unpretentious, uncomplicated and at its best served with good friends, casual conversation, and lighter fare.
