From the Producer

Vibrant and inviting, this wine captures the essence of Chardonnay grown on the cool, windswept Central Coast. Aromas of apricot, sweet hay and green apple leap from the glass. On the palate, deeper layers of fresh baked apple pie and anise emerge, with refreshing acidity and hints of subtle French oak carrying the flavors to a pure, radiant finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 6th Feb 2020

"The 2017 Chardonnay Central Coast had full malolactic and aged 16 months in 10% new French oak. The nose has pure golden apple and quince scents with notes of charcuterie, cut hay, button mushroom, crushed hazelnuts, baker’s yeast and spring honey. The palate is medium-bodied, intense and savory with bright citrus hints, juicy acidity and a long finish. 13,000 cases produced." (92 pts.)

WE93 Wine Enthusiast 10/31/2019

"This widely available wine is a great showcase of a savory Chardonnay, starting with aromas of lime peel, dried lemon, sea salt and sandstone. There is a pleasing salinity to the palate, where seared Meyer lemon and tangerine ride vibrant acidity." (93 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
