Winemaker Notes

The final blend was aged 9 months on the stirred lees in 15% new French Oak barrels. The wines were then inoculated for malolactic fermentation at the end of primary fermentation. The MLF softened the natural acidity and cultivated aromas of white peach, nectarine, and citrus. Fruit forward, yet full-bodied with elegant cream (NOT BUTTER) and apricots, this stylish Chardonnay is a truly handcrafted wine that can be enjoyed with many food pairings or delightfully on its own.

COMMENTARY: Depending on what you like to drink, you may have a cocktail or a "cocktail" style Chardonnay. The 2015 CRU Vineyard Montage Chardonnay is ready to fulfill your needs. TASTING NOTES: This wine is ripe, smooth, and made for sipping. Its aromas and flavors of soft apples and peach drink swimmingly easy. (Tasted: February 4, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

CRU Winery Image
Handcrafted artisanal California wines with sustainable values. CRU Wine Company began as a dream shared by long-time friends Richard Spencer and Michael Conway. Their mutual interest in the fine wines produced by California’s best vineyards enticed them into winemaking; thus CRU Wine Company was born. The CRU label is exclusively comprised of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. These varietals are sourced from some of the finest family-owned and operated vineyards on California’s Central Coast. CRU selects grapes from vineyards that are SIP (Sustainability in Practice) certified and from owners who care about the well-being of people and the planet. The expertly grown fruit consistently delivers exceptional and balanced flavors.

A geographic and climatic paradise for grape vines, Monterey is a part of the greater Central Coast AVA and contains within it five smaller sub-appellations, including Arroyo Seco, San Lucas, San Bernabe, Hames Valley and the famous Santa Lucia Highlands. The climate is relatively warm but tempered by cool, coastal winds, allowing the regions in Monterey County an exceptionally long growing season. Bud break often happens two weeks sooner and harvest tends to be two weeks later compared to other surrounding regions.

Monterey’s coastal side, where the cooling ocean fog allows grapes to develop a perfect sugar-acid balance, excels in the production of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling. Warmer, inland subzones are home to fleshy, concentrated and full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel.

Chardonnay, covering about 40% of vineyard acreage, is the most widely planted grape in all of Monterey County.

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.
