2018 Chardonnay Courtney's Vineyard
A wine of wit and wisdom, showing off the impressive range of a storied varietal, eschewing everything trite. A repartee with honeysuckle, wet slate and stone fruit on the nose. Roundness on the palate envelopes sumptuous notes of peach, guava, and pie crust. Soft acidity and subtle creaminess linger on the finish.
About the Vineyard
Courtney’s Vineyard sits on the slopes of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA in the westernmost section of the Santa Ynez Valley. Brisk ocean breezes and lingering fog create cool growing conditions that allow long hangtimes and optimal flavor development without loss of structure. The property features limestone-based soils and offers a mix of clones carefully matched to the terroir.
This wine pairs elegantly with aged cheeses such as gruyere and gouda; herb crusted halibut or seared scallops; and rotisserie chicken
