Inviting aromas of green apple and citrus are accented by vibrant mineral notes. Bright flavors of honeysuckle and passion fruit dance on the palate, ending with a hint of lemon. The wine displays a crisp acidity while maintaining a balanced palate and creamy texture that leads to a long finish
The 2013 vintage across Monterey was an ideal growing season with the perfect conditions for bloom and fruit set. A dry winter led to a mild spring and cool summer. The extra summer fog and cloud cover allowed for an extended growing season resulting in excellent flavor concentration, good acidity, and structure.
The grapes for our 2013 Pure Chardonnay were selectively harvested, very cold during the night. The wine underwent a cold fermentation for 20 days and was aged on lees for 8 months in 100% stainless steel with the lees stirred weekly.
