Varietal
Chardonnay
Appellation
Santa Maria Valley
2009 - 1.5 L

The wine completed native yeast fermentation and native malo-lactic conversion in barrel, with lees stirring two to three times each week. The Chardonnay’s seamless integration, weight and round mouthfeel are products of its barrel fermentation and the stirring of the lees. This wine presents complex aromas of melon, pineapple and green apple. On the palate, subtle spice is complemented by a pleasing freshness.
