This Chardonnay has saline minerality and enticing layers of lemon zest, orange peel, hints of lime, and mint. On the palate it has both nerve and energy, also an inviting creaminess to this wine, that helps to draw out the flavors to a lingering finish.
Description

The grapes for this wine come from a single vineyard located in the southern hills of Scotts Valley, just four miles from the town of Santa Cruz and the Pacific Ocean. The dry-farmed Chardonnay vines on this site were planted in 1998, in sandy soils rich in marine deposits. Surrounded by forests, and featuring a north-south row orientation, these vines yield small, tiny-berried clusters. While this is a very cool vineyard that produces grapes with great acidity, the fruit also achieves lovely ripeness at low sugar levels.
