These Chardonnay grapes were discovered in cool-climate growing regions of California, from the Central Coast to the Delta Region of the Sacramento River. The variety of vineyards and growing areas provide a tapestry of flavor, together creating a balanced, complex and harmonious wine. The blend is produced in a family-owned winery with state-of-the-art solar and water conservation technology. Grapes are harvested during cooler night and morning hours to highlight the crisp citrus flavors. After crushing, the must is fermented at cool temperatures, around 60°F, in stainless steel tanks. A small portion of the blend undergoes malolactic fermentation, adding complexity, silkiness and body to the wine.

Tasting Note

Tropical fruits of mango, pineapple and guava give this Chardonnay a lush aroma. On the palate more subtle mineral and stone fruit flavors linger.

Food Pairing

This harmonious wine is perfect for smoked chicken salad, four-cheese pizza, fried delights, spicy foods, devious dalliances and musical mayhem.

About the Grape

Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
