VARIETAL. 100% Chardonnay

VINEYARD. Leslie’s Estate, Montebello Road. Santa Cruz Mountains

WINEMAKING. Organically farmed, and tended to with the utmost sustainability, the 2020 vintage was harvested on September 7th, 2020 at the peak of ripeness. The grapes were then fermented and aged, sur lees, in French Oak. Once the primary fermentation is complete, the wine goes through a full malolactic conversion process, and finally barrel-aged (50% new barrels) for 12-months.

Aroma: Brimming with luscious tropical aromas of pineapple and coconut, white nectarine, French vanilla, nutmeg and fresh baked brioche.
Palate: Delicately integrated flavors of blood orange, apple, pear, lemon, apricot, ginger, melon, papaya, and white floral notes. Toasted brioche, with a long luscious finish.

FOOD PAIRING. This sophisticated wine will pair beautifully with east coast-style lobster rolls, triple cream brie cheese, rich seabass, a parmesan leek quiche, dungeness crab salad, grilled artichokes with lemon aioli, or a blood orange soufflé.
