A big, rounded wine with aromas of ripe pear, crisp apple, and bright citrus met with decadent vanilla & crème brûlée through the mid-palate and finish. This Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented and aged in French and American oak for 8 months.
This wine goes great with chicken, a creamy pasta, or just enjoying on the patio to celebrate the end of the work week.
Tribute Chardonnay is sourced from the renowned growing region of the Monterey AVA, primarily from two vineyards, McCoy Vineyard and San Lucas Vineyard. Our McCoy Vineyard provides a temperate microclimate from the Pacific fog that settles across the vineyards and promotes acidity development & steady retention of acidity. The windy weather, sandy soil, and fog contribute to an elongated growing season. Our San Lucas Vineyard, known for its wider diurnal temperature swings, brings well-ripened fruit that contributes tropical flavors.
