Winemaker Notes
This beautiful Chardonnay offers luscious aromas of fresh lemon zest, Mandarin orange, honeysuckle, vanilla and caramel. On the palate, it is silky and rounded, with a creamy mouthfeel that adds depth and richness to the alluring citrus and tropical flavors. The finish is long and refreshing, with bright natural acidity carrying the wine to a vibrant fruit and spice finish.
Production
The vintage began with a cool winter, with late rains, followed by a mild spring and early summer. As the weather turned hot over Labor Day, our Pinot Noir harvest commenced, with the vast majority of the grapes picked over a 10-day period. The late-summer heat also spurred our Cabernet Sauvignon to an early harvest, with our first grapes picked on September 16th. While the impact of smoke required us to be exacting in our grape selection process in both Monterey County and Paso Robles, Southern San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County were largely unaffected. To ensure the absolute quality of our wines, only the finest grapes were used in 2020, yielding wines with great complexity and depth, generous layers of dark fruit and deep, rich colors.

I just had my first bottle of this--the 2019 vintage--with a bowl of bouillabaise. Just great! I hadn't thought chardonnary would be good--dry enough-- with fish soup but when a friend brought it, I was surprised how good it was.
