With the exception of the Lolonis vineyard fruit (which was stainless steel fermented and then barrel aged for 4 months). Our cuvée is fermented in barrel (20% new) and aged sur-lees for about eight months. Stirring the barrels regularly aids in the completion of malo-lactic fermentation, yielding complexity, depth of flavor and aroma. The Santa Maria vineyards add a tropical fruit character to the wine, flavors and aroma of mango, pineapple, and papaya. The Sonoma vineyards attribute citrus character and acid to the cuvée. The Mendocino vineyard, Lolonis, has a flavor profile that leans toward apples aromas of apple crisp and cinnamon. Food Pairing: Halibut with a white wine burre blanc sauce would complement the complex flavors of the Cuvée Chardonnay nicely.

Offers good density to the baked apple and pear flavors, with caramel and spice notes on the finish.
