Winemaker's Comments:
This wine provides the consumer with a classic Santa Barbara County Chardonnay experience at an excellent value. Partially barrel fermented and aged in a combination of French and American oak for 8 months, citrus and melon aromas predominate on the nose. Green apple, grapefruit and mild pear notes make for a refreshing, crisp sensation on the palate. This wine is crafted in a very approachable style while maintaining excellent body - a perfect by-the-glass choice.
Pair with roast turkey and pastas in a light cream sauce.
