Estancia Chardonnay is produced from grapes grown in their Pinnacles Vineyard on the east side of the Salinas Valley at the base of the Gavilan Mountains, with additional fruit from the Santa Lucia Highlands to the west. The cool climate and sandy, well-drained soils keep yields low and fruit intensity high.
Appearance: Light straw gold in color.
Aroma: Fresh pear and crisp apple are accented by notes of honeydew with a touch of floral on the finish.
Flavor: Bright tropical notes and stone fruit compliment the vibrant nuances of citrus. Soft touches of toasty oak and cream accentuate the lingering, minerally finish.
