Chardonnay

A very distinct wine, our Chardonnay showcases itself with bold Santa Lucia Highlands fruit coupled with a solid acid structure. Undergoing a light French Oak treatment, and devoid of malolatic fermentation, this Chardonnay’s focus is the grape itself. All of our Chardonnay’s lend themselves to bottle aging highlighting the intricacies of the grape over the wines life. For technical details on specific vintages, please utilize each wine's hyperlink in their title below.
