VINEYARDS

Our Cuvée Chardonnay is a unique wine which blends Chardonnay from five different vineyards to produce the quintessential California Chardonnay. We source from Bien Nacido and Goodchild in the Santa Maria Valley which has a maritime climate. From the Carneros AVA, in the southern part of Sonoma County, we source from Sangiacomo, Durell and Parmelee-Hill vineyards.

 

WINE STYLE & TASTING NOTE

We ferment the majority of our Cuvee in barrel (20% new) and age the wine sur-lie for about eight months. The Santa Maria fruit adds a tropical character to the wine, flavors and aroma of mango, pineapple, and papaya. The Sonoma vineyards attribute citrus character and acid to the Cuvée.

 

FOOD PAIRINGS

Halibut with a white wine burre blanc sauce would complement the complex flavors of the Cuvée Chardonnay nicely.
