Description

Our single vineyard and small lot releases enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of chardonnay by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. The Parker West Vineyard is a dynamic site planted in sandy soils on a windswept hillside several miles from the cold Pacific Ocean. 

This chardonnay offers up generous notes of lemon cream, citrus, yellow peach, golden apple, toasty oak and vanilla all backed by bright, refreshing acidity.
