    Winemaker Notes

    Our Chardonnay is a classic expression of pure coastal style, sourced 100% from the heart of the Central Coast. This is a blend of three very special vineyards. Vina del Rey provides the backbone of this wine. Located just south of the Santa Lucia Highlands, this sandy clay soil vineyard provides great citrus and lemon-lime overtones. Arroyo Seco just may be one of the finest Chardonnay appellations in the state. This well-drained, large pebble soil retains heat from the mid-day sun, maintaining an even growing season while producing intense and flavorful grapes. Finally, Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay lends a beautiful tropical note to the otherwise citrus-infused flavors of Monterey.

    We're striving for balanced flavors. As a result, 40% of the blend went through malolactic fermentation; giving the wine some creamy texture without overpowering the beautiful citrus overtones. Weekly lees stirring also added to the creaminess of the wine. About 30% of the blend underwent barrel fermentation in a 50–50% mix of American and French oak, giving the wine some subtle toasty flavors.

    As we like to say in our native Australia, "we reckon it's a cracker of a wine!" There's a nice balance between fruit and oak. The final blend is full of tropical fruit, melon and peach with a subtle hint of toasty oak. This is also a versatile wine, perfect with grilled seafood, chicken and creamy pasta dishes.

    Hugh Reimers and Sam Burton are not your typical winemakers. When they decided to start the Twin Fin, they wanted it to be really different—to capture the California lifestyle they’ve come to love. “We are part of a new generation of wine drinkers,” says Hugh. “We wanted to make this wine as a connection to all the things that we love: sand and surf, snowboarding, golf, living the California Dream. Twin Fin is cool, classic, but laid back and generous. It’s just plain great.”

    “Twin Fin is all about fun: relaxed, and always comfortable,” says Sam. “Good wine is like those experiences that become memories, where the horizon signifies not an end, but a beginning—of the next wave, the next adventure, the next possibility. It’s where quality and personality, character and substance all meet in one bottle.”

    Hugh and Sam are not what you’d expect from winemakers; these guys are better. While they both have impressive backgrounds – Hugh graduated from Australia’s top winemaking school and Sam has worked with wineries in all of the major wine regions of Australia – they also know how to have a good time. They really live in the spirit of the wine they create: people that work hard and play hard.

    “We get the grapes from select vineyards along California’s Central Coast,” says Sam. “That gives us great wine quality, and a chance to travel to all the places we love to visit.” This winemaking duo makes six wines: Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir. The wines are fresh and fruit-driven and offer tremendous quality for the price—just right for everything from beach barbecues to dinner with the in-laws. “The perfect night, the perfect friends and the perfect wine—it’s that easy with Twin Fin,” says Hugh.

    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.
