Montebello, Santa Cruz Mountains
We are pleased to announce that this vintage of Chardonnay was awarded Best of Show at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. It showed against over 3,000 white wine entries sourced from around the globe and was rates by famous judges such as Steven Spurrier from the historic Judgement of Paris Tasting. 100% Montebello Chardonnay, aged in 45% new French Oak barrels for 10-months. Brimming with luscious aromas of white nectarine, French vanilla, graham cracker and crème fraiche. Delicately integrated flavors of blood orange and rum soaked trifle, round mouthfeel and that distinctive chalky minerality unique to the Montebello terroir. This sophisticated, multi-layered vintage will pair beautifully with creamy pasta, grilled shrimp, fresh vegetables, soft cheeses and Alaskan King Crab with drawn butter.
A white wine for the red wine connoisseur!
