The grapes for Carpe Diem Chardonnay are selected from the Firepeak vineyard, nestled
in the picturesque Edna Valley, four miles from the Pacific Ocean. This cool coastal climate allows for one
of the longest growing seasons in California. The vineyard lies at the base of the Islay Mountains, the final
peak in an old volcanic chain.
|2008 "This is a great example of a style of Chardonnay many winemakers only strive for. Burgundian, cool climate flavors of apple and pear seasoned with the spice of French oak. Rich and full bodied, with plenty of mouth cleansing acidity."
