The Grape

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

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.
