Description

"This is a steal for under $20, offering aromas of apple flesh, ripe pear, brioche and yellow grapefruit on the nose. The palate is crisp with citrus yet broad with fresh Gravenstein and Gala apple flavors." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

"...this medium gold-colored white is a total charmer and gives up plenty of white flowers, white peach, and hoenysuckle aromas, medium body, good fruit, and a clean finish. It's well worth its going rate." ~ Jeb Dunnuck 

"...a gorgeous appellation-level wine, and an even better value. Varietal orchard fruit and tropical flavors are nicely lifted by floral notes in this very pretty and highly expressive barrel-fermented Chardonnay." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"A spicy white, with richness to the peach cobbler and apple pastry flavors. Buttery notes on the creamy finish." ~ Wine Spectator

Since 1989 our family owned and operated winery has produced wines of superior quality and value. This handcrafted wine represents the best of what Santa Barbara County Chardonnay has to offer.  Flavors of ripe apple, butter, lemon, and melon are perfectly balanced with light toasty oak on the palate.
