George Troquato, Winemaker & Alejandro Aldama, Cellar Master

The Grape

Chardonnay originated in the Burgundy region of France, but it now makes up more than 50% of the grape vines grown in the Monterey AVA. Specific to this region, Chardonnay is distinct for its layered tropical flavors and bright acidity.

The Land

Chardonnay is the most widely planted white variety in the Monterey appellation. Chardonnay is specific to this region and is known for layered tropical flavors and bright acidity, due to the cooling influence of the Monterey Bay.

The Season


In early 2015, California experienced 30% more rainfall than in prior years, easing concerns over a possible fourth consecutive drought. Bud break in March was normal, but May was cold and wet, disrupting bloom and reducing crop loads up to 40% in some areas. Despite this, the vintage produced wines that are more structured, ensuring greater ageability.
