Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a mild pear and gentle vanilla oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. It also has a nice round mouth feel. The flavor profile is an appealing mild oak infused Bartlett pear with notes of vanilla and a hint of gentle minerality and butterscotch. The finish is dry and friendly. This Chard is food friendly and it would pair well with grilled garlic chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Chardonnays are known for their rich flavors, firm acidity and brilliant varietal flavors. But it is the pronounced minerality that sets them apart from their peers throughout the Golden State. Our 2010 Monterey Chardonnay offers a rich palate and crisp framework with tangerine peel aromas and tropical flavors of guava and pear with a touch of vanilla. The flavors are luscious, fruit forward and distinctly mineral thanks to our unique inner-coastal soils. the finish is crisp, structured and long.
