This Monterey County Chardonnay boasts of its heritage with elegance and class in a first estate vineyard release. Beautifully balanced, it speaks only subtly of fermentation in French oak. Opening with a pretty array of minerals weaved with nectarine and citrus aromas and flavors and highlights of hazelnut, it’s irresistible. Available at De Palo & Sons or Monterey St. Wine Co.—just $24 retail.
