Tropical aromas of banana, lemongrass, and citrus with subtle notes of vanilla and toasty oak. Bright acidity welcomes the palate, leading to a perfect balance of tropical fruit and baking spices that culminate in a lingering, clean finish.
The grapes for this wine were grown primarily in our St. Nicolas Vineyard in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County. This vineyard’s eastern facing slopes catch the morning sun in this cool-climate appellation. The unique soil combination of Lockwood Loam and Rincon Clay Loam is well-drained and rocky, challenging the vines to yield grapes of depth, character, and intensity. The extended growing season ripens the Chardonnay perfectly, creating well-balanced, flavorful wines.
