Slightly more luscious in style than the East Bend Chardonnay, the West Bend Chardonnay is layered in complexity with tropical fruit characters of peach, ripe nectarine and tangerine followed by a beautiful persistence of minerality and acidity.
About Carmel Road
Monterey is considered one of the premier growing regions in California. Inland from Monterey's rugged coastline, yet directly in the path of the ocean's relentless influence, Carmel Road creates vibrant Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon known for their rich flavors, firm acidity, and brilliant varietal flavors. Drawn to the area two decades ago, winemakers were attracted by the combination of cool, foggy nights and warm, sunny days that ripen fruit to perfection. From sustainably farmed vineyards that stretch across windswept benchlands, Carmel Road creates highly expressive wines.
