    Winemaker Notes

    Vanilla cream soda nose with a slice of fresh cut pineapple. Full body, tropical fruit, spice and pleasing vanilla oak notes linger in the finish. The sweet flavor on the palate is from sur-lie aging the wine on the primary yeast lees for 6 months. A versatile style of wine that can be served chilled with fine cuisine or with friends.

    Morro Bay, a historic fishing village located between Santa Barbara and Monterey, is the inspiration for these finely crafted wines. Made using the classic French “Sur Lie” method, these wines are crisp, fruity, and well balanced, suited to a wide range of cuisine.


    The location of the Lange Family Estate vineyard in the Delta region of Lodi provides for dramatic temperature shifts from day to night due to the influence of the delta breeze from San Francisco Bay. This allows for a slower maturation of the grapes resulting in a better balance of acidity and complexity in the taste profile. Machine harvesting at night – cooler grapes, enhanced flavor concentration. The vineyards are hand-pruned by experienced work crews adept at spur selection. In addition to green harvesting, shoot removal and leaf pulling are employed to further enhance flavor concentration. All grapes are sorted via a sorting belt prior to being pressed.

    Chardonnay

    California’s most praised white wine, Chardonnay is also the state’s most planted white grape variety. Diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredible range of wine styles.

    Chardonnay planted in the cooler, coastal zones takes on bright characteristics like lemon zest, key lime, green apple and wet flint. For this style, look to the chilly Sonoma Coast, Carneros, Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Lucia Highlands and Edna Valley.

    The inland zones of California’s coast, such as the Russian River, Sonoma, Napa and Livermore Valleys maintain a more Goldilocks-esque climate where both styles go. Early picking retains acidity and creates a leaner style but leaving the grapes to hang creates an approachable Chardonnay, balancing richness and finesse.

    Chardonnay also plays a major part in the sparkling wine production of the Anderson Valley and Carneros.
