Exudes aromas of red apples, melon and lemon zest. The palate brings forth flavors of pear, citrus, honeydew and toasted brioche all wrapped up by a balanced acidity. A lingering minerality leaves you going in for another sip.

Winemaker Notes
Our Reserve Chardonnay is made to be the best expression of any given vintage. For 2016, it exudes aromas of red apples, melon and lemon zest. The palate brings forth flavors of pear, citrus, honeydew and toasted brioche all wrapped up by a balanced acidity. A lingering minerality leaves you going in for another sip.

Production Notes
2016 produced average yields and high quality fruit. Few frost spells in winter and little to no rain led to an early bud break at the end of February. A very good fruit set in spring was followed by a warm summer that kept the vines roaring through veraison and maturation. Harvest occurred from August 23rd- October 13th, 2016.
Vineyard Notes
Over the past two decades the Santa Ynez Valley has emerged as one of the most celebrated winegrowing regions in California. Formed by the Purisima Hills and San Rafael Mountains to the north and the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south, it is the largest AVA in Santa Barbara County. The cool, western portion of the Santa Ynez Valley is well suited to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir while the warmer eastern section is home to aromatic whites such as Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache, and Sauvignon Blanc as well as bold reds including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
