This Chardonnay has a light golden hue and shows fresh and captivating fruit aromas of honeydew melon and lemon custard. The palate is rich and generous, layered with classic Chardonnay characteristics of ripe pear, apple tart, peach and vanilla shortbread that show subtle oak aging. The delicious creaminess and weight in the mouth are kept fresh by the natural acidity of cool-climate Santa Lucia Highlands fruit resulting in a wine with exquisite balance.
