After years of searching for amazing Chardonnay, we found the Boekenoogen Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County. Our 2018 Chardonnay is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of freshness to oak. Aromas and flavors of fresh cut Meyer lemon, pomelo and grapefruit with white peaches, white tea and hibiscus. Wet stone mineral notes and freshly baked croissant come through on the finish. Drink now or for the next 2-4 years.
