(2008 Vintage) Grapes for this 2008 vintage came from small vineyards in Paso Robles, Santa Maria Valley, and San Benito County. The Paso Robles and San Benito regions offer warmer climate characteristics of tropical fruit and fuller mouth feel while the ocean influence in the Santa Maria Valley provides the uniqueness of citrus, pear, and apple coupled with good acidity. Our 2008 Chardonnay is a brilliant wine with aromas of apple, pear, and pineapple with a hint of vanilla toast. Full of green apple, peach, and lemon in the mouth, it is rich, crisp, and seamless from beginning to end. Enjoy this Chardonnay with aged cheeses or roasted lemon chicken.
