This light straw colored wine has aromas of green apple, apple blossom, peach blossom, flinty minerality and hints of dried lemon peel. On the palate, a medium-light body and bright acidity frame flavors of apple, pear, cantaloupe, meyer lemon and again a flinty minerality.

More about this wine

Winemaker Notes
Each year working with Steiner Creek Chardonnay we discover more potential in the wines made from these young vines planted near the town of Cambria, CA. The vineyard’s sandy, cobbled soils yield miniscule quantities of high quality Chardonnay. The characteristics of these soils are markedly different from those found in Santa Maria Valley leading to wines of distinct origin and unique aromatics and flavors. As is the case with all Presqu’ile Chardonnays, sur lie aging and light lees stirring is utilized to add richness to the palate.
