Wine Profile

Tasting Notes The east-facing altitudes of the Santa Lucia Highlands enjoy consistently warm days and cool nights throughout the growing season. The outcome? Beautifully ripe Chardonnay berries with moxie. Fragrant with heather and chamomile, the profile arrives on the palate modulated, the tiers of flavors playing upon each other. Peaches, Jonagold apples, and pineapples emerge. Kinetic twinges of lemon citrus notes merge with brioche and vanilla. Fine acidity grants an elegant, gliding, and persistent finish.
Winemaker Notes Fruit sourced from Sarmento Vineyards in the prestigious Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County. Barrel fermented and aged sur lie for 10 months in 30% new oak barrels. Lees were stirred weekly for the first two months of aging to create it’s creamy texture.
