Consistent wind and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean combined with marine soils makes the Sta. Rita Hills ideal for growing Chardonnay. This fabulous fruit comes from multiple vineyards spanning the AVA. Aged 16 months in neutral and new French oak barrels, it is a classic Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay.
This Chardonnay has bright acidity with a medium body and long finish. On the palate, there are notes of pineapple, golden delicious apple, lemon custard, vanilla and toasted marshmallow.
