Vineyard Information: Our estate vines are situated on a sloping south-west exposure at a 1,560 foot elevation in the cool-climate Santa Cruz Mountains. Located well above the fog line of Monterey Bay, the vines enjoy a long growing season marked by warm days and cool mountain nights.
Tasting Characteristics: Here’s Dave’s latest Estate-grown Chardonnay. A lovely lemony-straw color in the glass opens up to a nose of toast and lemon custard, pears and pineapple. This is a zesty Chardonnay with juicy flavors of grapefruit, almonds, honey tangelo and golden delicious apple. The lively acidity begs to be enjoyed with equally lively fare. We vote for freshly shucked oysters. Best enjoyed now thru 2020
