Pale yellow in color with glints of green and gold, this refreshing and crisp, Chablis-style chardonnay displays an aroma of barely-ripe pear and yellow apple, along with a touch of lemon pith and bright chervil. On the palate, you’ll find lively acidity with hints of green and yellow apple, ripe pear, lemon zest, and chalky crushed white stones.
The bed of the Arroyo Seco River which predominately exists as a dry riverbed alluvial mixed with fertile Salinas Valley soils creates an amazing foundation for these vines. Its location in the very southwest of Salinas Valley at the entrance of the Arroyo Seco Canyon provides consistent heat and evening maritime cooling which influences a longer yet intense growing season. The earthy notes are a result of this unique soil and climate conditions.
