From the famed Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley, the grapes were hand harvested, whole cluster pressed (to minimize tannin extraction from the skins), totally barrel fermented in 100% new François Frères barrels, aged for 18 months, then bottled unfiltered. One whiff reveals this is obviously Chardonnay made in an old world style. Sweet barrel spice mixes nicely with a lemon limey note from the fruit.  It is surprisingly rich on the palate, and the classic Chardonnay flavors of apple, citrus and vanilla go on and on. This  lively wine will go with wide assortment of foods. Lobster Pappardelle with chive butter or fresh corn soufflé with bacon and comté are just a couple of favorites with this Chardonnay.
