Blenheim apricot backed with tropical guava, mango and pineapple. The palate is rich with ripe Fuji apple, Bartlett pear and a hint of cinnamon. The mid- palate, rich yet balanced with creamy vanilla and light caramel flavors.

The vineyard is in the very cool climate of Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey CountyThe wine is made in small batches and picked at optimal ripeness. It was fermented on French oak (35% new and 65% neutral) and Sur Lies aged and has undergone partial malo-lactic to achieve a softer, richer and creamier mid-palate and finish.

This Chardonnay pairs well with pan seared wild King Salmon with a light béarnaise sauce served with sautéed Blue Lake beans, crispy wild rice with seaweed and dusted with black sesame seeds.
