Aromas of orange blossom are layered with notes of juicy ripe fruits on the nose. White peach and butterscotch flavors are complemented by nuances of crème brûlée and chamomile. This Chardonnay has balanced acidity with a lingering finish that is clean and crisp.
We take great pride in producing distinctive wines that highlight the unique nuances of each appellation, while at the same time nourishing the land by using minimally intrusive winemaking practices. This Chardonnay offers a beautiful expression of Edna Valleys rich marine and volcano sediment deposited in the valley millions of years ago. The oceanic and volcanic soils are characterized today by black humus, loam and clay that is prominent in the Edna Valley terrior.
The maritime influence is powerful in the Edna Valley, more dominant than that of any region along the Pacific Coast. The transverse valley has moderate sunshine and cool maritime fog which flows south east with the cool Pacific Ocean breezes into Edna Valley. This extended growing season provides for later harvest dates than
other valleys in the Central Coast and contributes to the complex flavors of this premium Chardonnay.
