Winemaker Notes

Elegant and understated, with aromas of Meyer lemon zest, wet stone and a suggestion of white truffle. Quince, tangerine, and raw almond on the palate, with spice tones of nutmeg and clove on the long finish. Beautiful balance and energy, this is a wine for lovers of white Burgundy wines, and will reward proper mid-term cellaring.

Wine Enthusiast

Tightly wound on the nose, this bottling steadily releases aromas of fresh lemons as well as pastry dough on the nose. The palate mixes that citrusy kick, including dried lemon-peel flavors, alongside more savory tones of hazelnut and marcona almond.

JD 90
Jeb Dunnuck

Lots of spiced orchard fruits, tart peach, and floral notes emerge from the 2017 Chardonnay Center of Effort, and it's nicely textured, medium-bodied, has bright acidity, and a clean finish.

From their estate vineyard and winery located in the cool foothills of the Edna Valley, Rob Rossi and Bill Swanson join together with winemaker Nathan Carlson and the farming wisdom of the Talley family, to craft this impressive line up of wines. Sustainably farmed, the vines enjoy thedelicate balance of a cool climate and lean soils, producing wineswith a unique sense of character and place. Originally planted in1978, the vineyard has been given new life under their ownership and we expect to add to the strength of wines from this region.

Edna Valley Wine

Central Coast, California

California’s coolest wine growing area, Edna Valley excels in the production of high quality Central Coast wines like Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Rhône Blends and aromatic white wines. It has a cool Mediterranean climate and an incredibly long growing season, giving late-ripening varieties plenty of opportunity to develop great phenolic complexity.

Its northwest to southeast orientation creates a direct path for cool Pacific air and fog to penetrate the valley from the Los Osos and Morro Bay area inwards. Low hillsides of both calcareous and volcanic soils are home to much of the vineyard acreage of the Edna Valley.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
