Varietal Overview

Individually chosen from lots on our own estate vineyards and from growers who farm to our exacting standards enable us to craft a high quality Chardonnay that is fruit forward, yet elegant and approachable in style.

At a Glance

taste + style

A touch tropical, our Chardonnay is crisp and clean, bright with balanced acidity, that lets the signature lemon-lime and a touch of apple flavors of Monterey shine through.

Vineyard + Production

Our 352 acre Shirtail Creek estate vineyard takes advantage of Monterey’s cooling fog and Pacific coastal breezes, drawn across the Gabilan Mountains into the Salinas Valley, creating an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay. The moderate temperatures lengthen the growing season, allowing the fruit to evolve with layers of distinct Central Coast flavors.

Our Chardonnay is fermented and aged in stainless tanks without any oak or malolactic influence.

Food + Wine Pairing

Our Chardonnay complements tangy, spicy foods and offsets the richness of creamier foods as well.
