The 2016 vintage of our Central Coast Chardonnay comes from Santa Maria Valley, which is the northernmost appellation in Santa Barbara County. The shape of the valley generates a regularity of fog at night, through the morning, and wind in afternoon. The soil consists of sandy loam and silty soils. The Chardonnay was fermented and aged in 90% stainless steel and 10% used French oak with partial malolactic fermentation. This wine is meant to be enjoyed in its youth.
