An absolutely delicious entry-level offering, the 2021 Central Coast Chardonnay shows notes of ripe pear and apple backed by a fresh structure and well-balanced acidity. The great mid-palate highlights notes of citrus, chamomile, and closes with a bright, mineral finish.
The story of this wine begins in 2008 when I was running RN74 in San Francisco. I phoned my friend Sashi Moorman to ask about great California Chardonnays to pour by the glass. Sashi challenged me to make one with him. Born of my desire to have a great, balanced California Chardonnay to pour by the glass, this wine is sourced from biodynamic, organic, and sustainably farmed vineyards throughout California’s Central Coast. Working closely with second, third, and fourth generation grape growers in cool, coastal sites, this wine is lively and refreshing because of the wisdom and care each grower imparts to their grapes.
