Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Chardonnay opens with enticing sweet pear, white peach, golden apple and bright citrus aromas, supported by vanilla and mineral scents. On the mouth-filling palate, creamy apple, peach, melon and lime flavors lead to a long, rich finish buoyed by refreshing mineral tones.

Boasting superb structure and lush varietal flavors, this deeply satisfying Chardonnay is delicious now, both on its own and with a broad range of seafood, poultry and vegetarian dishes.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

This shows an evident layer of oak in the form of buttered toast and vanilla notes, but the underlying wine is strong in pineapple and golden mango flavors. Fine coastal acidity and a hint of mineral provide structural balance.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Chardonnay shows the richer, tropical fruit side of Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay in its voluptuous notes of mango, butter, sweet spices and lychee. This soft, impeccable wine boasts superb balance and tons of class. Even better, it is a fabulous wine for the money. The Chardonnay was fermented 60% in steel and 40% in oak, then spent eleven months in French oak barrels.

The Gainey Vineyard, , California
Gainey
In 1962, Daniel C. and son Daniel J. Gainey purchased an 1,800 acre ranch on the eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley. The Gainey Ranch, a combination of cattle, farming, and Arabian horse breeding, became the largest diversified ranching operation in the valley.

Dan J. Gainey retired in 1984 to devote himself to fulfilling his dream of making wine. In 1983, he planted 51 acres of vineyards on the northern boundary of the Gainey Ranch and in November of 1984 the 12,000 square foot Spanish-style winery opened its doors to visitors. Soon after, Dan H. Gainey joined his father and together the father-son team have set out to produce premium, hand-crafted wines made from the best vineyards in Santa Barbara County.

With over 40 years of farming experience behind them, the Gaineys have a connection to the land that few vintners may share. Since the original vineyard planting in 1983, the Gaineys have added 32 acres to their "Home" Ranch, which is primarily planted to the Bordeaux varietals Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. In 1996, they purchased 120 acres on the western end of the Santa Ynez Valley, a cooler growing region more suitable for Burgundian varietals. In 1997, they planted 35 acres at this "Santa Rosa Hills" Ranch to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah, with plans for further plantings in the years ahead.

View More

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.
