Grand Reserve Santa Barbara and Monterey Counties Chardonnay 2016
Lush tropical fruit intertwines with lemon, lime and floral notes. Elegantly layered, this Grand Reserve Chardonnay exhibits a rich texture and firm backbone with a hint of vanilla and spice to round out the long finish.
In 2016, we had one of the earliest seasons ever. From bud break to harvest, we were about one month early on all fronts. Yet with this shift, the growing days were essentially the same as a “normal” season.
