Our 2012 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay displays the layered complexity and balance we have come to expect from the deep, sandy soils at our sustainably farmed Santa Maria Valley Vineyard.   Native yeast fermentation, native malo-lactic conversion (50%), sur lie aging and light lees stirring enhance complexity and lend a beautiful weight on the palate.  Barrel fermentation and aging were completed in 100% neutral French oak.

More about this wine

Winemaker Notes
This pale golden wine carries aromas of peach, pear, lychee, wet stone and a hint of fresh baked brioche. On the palate, this medium bodied Chardonnay gives flavors of peach and pear along with pineapple, granny smith apple, minerality and a hint of salinity. The lengthy finish lingers on the palate for minutes.
