2017
Central Coast

Chardonnay
Description

Harvested in the early morning hours, the grapes underwent cold fermentation and were aged on less in 100% stainless steel. The lees were stirred weekly to provide a creamy mid-palate and highlight the wine’s naturally bright acidity. Grapes were carefully selected from fog-influenced vineyards across the expansive Central Coast, one of the most diverse and climatically cool grape growing regions in California.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

The 2017 Central Coast Chardonnay opens with crisp green apple aromatics and reveals complex and layered flavors of fresh apricot and grapefruit. 

Palate: 

With a hint of key lime and lively mineral notes, the subtle oak and refreshing acidity leaves a beautifully balanced and long-lasting finish that unlocks the hidden beauty of the California Central Coast.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

A wet winter was followed by a steady spring and cool August temperatures before a heat spike in early September. The long and even growing season created near perfect growing conditions resulting in balanced acid and concentrated flavors.
