Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Glacier Ridge Chardonnay is a modern wine with an abundance of old-world charm. It was fermented and aged in just enough oak to lend depth, while still highlighting this wine's beautiful varietal character. Enticing aromas of freshly cut green apple, white nectarine, and vanilla bean Crème Brûlée all can be found in the glass.

The cool climate acidity is evident throughout the palate, making this wine a versatile pairing partner with many dishes. The wine aged in oak had its lees stirred weekly to add richness and length to the mid-palate. The proximity of the vineyards to the ocean creates a faint but refreshing minerality.

James Suckling

An appley chardonnay that shows lots of pear drops and grapefruit. Round and approachable on the palate with medium acidity and a fruity finish. Drink now.

Monterey Wine

Central Coast, California

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.
