Aromas of peach compote on toast, honeysuckle and lemongrass make for a very fresh and floral nose on this bottling from the historic vineyard. A chalky mouthfeel frames flavors of seared lemon and roasted peach.
Wine Tasting Notes
Long before Chardonnay was widely produced throughout the United States, a small band of vintners from Santa Maria were experimenting with this classic varietal. They discovered that Santa Marias long, cool growing season and maritime influences create Chardonnays of greater dimension. Our Reserve reflects these qualities, and is tinged with the scent of Fuji apple, Meyer lemon, and fresh pineapple.
