Santa Maria Valley AVA
My Chardonnay is from the Santa Maria Valley AVA in the rolling hills of northern Santa Barbara County where some of the finest Chardonnay grapes are grown. The morning marine fog and the afternoon ocean breezes make the cool-climate Santa Maria Valley prime for Chardonnay with slow ripening grapes that result in an expressive, well-balanced wine with a rich palate and fresh acidity. Aged sur lees for 8 months primarily in neutral French oak barrels, I left just a kiss of oak on the bright fruit.
