Winemaker Notes: 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.
Food Pairing: Enjoy this Chardonnay with aged cheeses or roasted lemon chicken.
