It's the return of our classic Chard-O-Yay! Carmelized pineapple with a hint of lemon and minerality gladly share the glass with lush tropical fruit. A silky mouthfeel and clean finish bring it all full circle. Can't you just feel the sand beneath your feet?

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
All three Chardonnay clones (76, 96, and 809) were crushed and destemmed before pressing. The 809 clone had a 28-hour soak on the skins to enhance aromatics. Two separate yeast strains were used - one for the oak treatment and one for the stainless steel. The wine was stirred on the lees for the first three months, and once a month for the last two. The oak and stainless steel components were blended in March 2017 and allowed to integrate before fining, cold stabilization, and bottling.
