2018 San Simeon Chardonnay, Monterey

Rich, mouth-filling wine with ripe, tropical fruit flavors with complements of citrus and pear. The nose reveals bright fruit and toasty oak with hints of vanilla and spice. Mineral notes express the rocky terroir of the vineyards. This structured and well-balanced wine shows a lengthy finish with potential to age.

Sustainability

Sustainability is our top priority. Our Paso Robles and Monterey vineyards are certified sustainable by CSWA. At our Paso Robles winery, solar panels provide 100% of the needed electricity, and wastewater is effectively reclaimed and recycled for additional uses.

Wine Making

San Simeon Chardonnay comes only from the best lots that our estate vineyards have to offer. Small lots are picked and fermented individually with minimal intervention to allow the true expression of the soil and climate. The wines are matured in a unique selection of hand-crafted French and American oak barrels.

Food Pairing

Extremely food friendly, our San Simeon Chardonnay pairs well with a range of dishes. From poultry and pasta to seafood and salads, our Chardonnay shines.
