    Winemaker Notes

    This wine is 100% Chardonnay from Monterey County, a grape that benefits from cool coastal influences. This offering has inviting aromas of fresh pears and tropical fruit with flavors of creme brulee plus light citrus zest. A hint of vanilla oak creates a lingering, rich finish.

    Distant Bay, Central Coast, California
    Distant Bay wines are from the increasingly popular Monterey County, a grape growing region noted for creating Burgundian style wines of distinction. Their vineyards are tucked into the Santa Lucia Highlands, which lie just 30 miles southeast from Monterey Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The California central coast's cooling fogs and mild temperatures combine to create a long growing season. Additionally, the extra hang time creates a host of complex flavors.

    Distant Bay winery is a part of the Ch. Ste Michelle Family of wines based in Washington State. Their inaugural release includes the 2003 Chardonnay and the 2002 Pinot Noir. These are both excellent varietals to depict the quality and style of wines being produced today in Monterey County.

    The Central Coast wine growing region in California encompasses a large area stretching from the Santa Cruz Mountains, 30 miles south of San Francisco, all the way down the California coast to Santa Barbara, 90 miles north of Los Angeles. The Monterey County is one of the largest wine growing regions within the Central Coast appellation. Much of Monterey County has a cool and windy climate which is why Chardonnay and Pinot grow well in the region. Chardonnay is the dominant grape alongside others such as Riesling, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
