Ask a question about this product

* Bronze Medal- Orange County Fair
Year after year this Chardonnay has layers of tropical fruit, citrus and spice. All flavors are also unveiled with delightful notes of caramel, vanilla, butter, honey, smoke, and toast. This Chardonnay is extremely complex, rich and full bodied, with well balanced fruit and acid. It has well defined depth, a silky texture, balanced acidity and a clean crisp long finish.

Fermentation
Fermentation consisted of initial French Oak Barrel fermentation and a secondary 100% Malo-Lactic fermentation in which the harsher Malic Acid is converted to the softer Lactic Acid.

Barrel Age
The wine was aged in 100% French Oak from the Allier, Never and Troncais Forest for twelve (12) months. The wine was further aged for an additional 12 months in the bottle. Aging in the bottle allows the wine to rest and round out its natural fruit flavor and aromatic attributes.

The winery produces Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, Merlot and Zinfandel. It is located in the Edna Valley, San Luis Obispo, CA

Central Coast Wine Region; Edna Valley Appellation
Between San Luis Obispo and Oceana, California lies the Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande Valley Appellations. Both valleys are wide open to the cool Pacific winds and fog. This cool climate is ideal for great Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Likewise, this climate, and an unusual combination of soils, make it potentially the equal of any winemaking region in the world.
