Description
Never had a Chardonnay from the Santa Maria Valley before? Prepare yourself to be blown away. This region is nestled along the California Coast in a rare east-west mountain range that ushers in a cooling marine influence on an almost daily basis. Rich and creamy in golden mango, pineapple, yellow peach and honeysuckle flower flavors, with oak barrel aging that brings notes of buttered biscuits and vanilla bean to the palate and finish.
