2019 Chamisal Vineyards Edna Valley Chardonnay
Chamisal was the first vineyard planted in the Edna Valley in 1973 and now encompasses 80 acres planted to 5 varieties across three distinct soil types. The nearby Pacific Ocean creates a long temperate growing season that, combined with the calcareous, clay-rich soils of our estate vineyards, produces ideal conditions for producing fruit of exceptional intensity and complexity.
The Estate Chardonnay entices with aromas of caramel, allspice, nutmeg and lemon peel that mingle with a flinty character for a tempting bouquet. On the palate, the wine is generously yet judiciously oaked to create a luxurious, soft, and full body with notes of lemon marmalade, stony minerality and a fresh finish. Drink now through 2025.
