A classic California-style Chardonnay with tropical aromas of pineapple, guava, and hints of almond leading to enticing flavors of ripe banana and hints of toast, with bright acidity, a balanced mouthfeel, and round finish.
Vineyard Notes
Bien Nacido Vineyard is an iconic American vineyard located in the Santa Maria Valley along the Central California coast, which has been producing highly acclaimed wines for over 40 years.

Winemaker Notes
Winter provided a record-breaking rainfall - a welcome end to the 4-years of drought. Bloom and fruit set in May occurred under ideal conditions. Summer was warm but the vines weathered the heat well and maturity moved along at a steady pace. A short but intense heat wave during the first part of September brought brix levels up dramatically and winemakers waited for the pH, acids, flavor and color development in the grapes to catch up to sugar accumulation. The 2018 wine quality shows a lot of bright acidity and fresh varietal aromas in the white wines, and deep color, sweet fruit flavors. Looking like it will be another classic year! - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
An excellent full-bodied wine to pair with chicken cordon bleu, lobster bisque, or crab cakes
