Tasting notes
Aromas of pineapple and green apple are followed on the palate by crisp citrus flavors. Medium-bodied and refreshing, this wine has a rich mid-palate, with just a hint of oak toast. Well-balanced acidity gives this wine a clean, crisp mouthfeel, with a zesty, fruit forward finish.

Rating
2008 Vintage - James Laube, Wine Spectator: "Candied citrus, green apple and melon flavors are pure and simple, clean and refreshing."


Wine maker notes
Monterey’s cooling fog and Pacific coastal breezes, drawn across the Gabilan Mountains into the Salinas Valley, create an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay, yielding wines with tantalizing tropical notes and crisp acidity. Moderate temperatures lengthen the growing season, allowing fruit to evolve with layers of distinct Central Coast flavors. This wine comes from our 352-acre Shirtail Creek estate vineyard in Monterey.
