Our 2014 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay displays the complexity and poise we have come to expect from the deep, sandy soils of western Santa Maria Valley. We employ traditional, natural techniques - native yeast fermentation, native malolactic conversion and sur lie aging. Practices which elevate and enhance the distinctive character of this region, accenting its fine balance between richness and vivacity. 

Reviews

Vinous: 90 Points, Outstanding
“The 2014 Chardonnay (Santa Maria Valley) is bright and nicely focused throughout. Lemon peel, white flowers and almond are front and center. This is a soft, open-knit, gracious style, especially for Santa Maria, where the Chardonnays are often a bit more pointed.”
- Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2016
