"MAYBE THEIR BEST EFFORT TO DATE!" -STEVE


"Concentrated ripe apple and pear flavors dominate this supple and well-spiced style. Hints of smoke and butterfat emerge on the rich finish. Drink now. 2,000 cases made. -KM " (WS)

"Standard aromas of Pink Lady and Gala apples meet with seared pear on the nose of this bottling. There's a hint of sweetness to the palate, where pan-seared apples, butter, sea salt and warm peach tones make for a fairly rich experience." (WE)

Winery Notes:
San Simeon Chardonnay is a rich, mouth-filling wine with ripe tropical fruit flavors with complements of citrus and pear. The nose reveals bright fruit and oak toast with hints of vanilla and spice. Mineral notes express rocky terroir of the vineyards. This structured and well-balanced wine shows a lengthy finish with potential to age.
