SKU: 17CH7

Chardonnay, the most popular white wine varietal. A noble grape, originally from Burgundy, now with its world-class reputation firmly established in the best coastal regions of the New World.

With each vintage of Highland Chardonnay, we showcase the unique attributes of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The 2017 cuvee includes 50% fruit from our Double L estate, the balance from outstanding neighbors in the SLH, including McIntyre and Tondre. The Double L Vineyard has been “Certified Organic” since 2002, but has been conscientiously farmed in this method since the original plantings in 1997.

This focused, elegant Chardonnay’s aromas feature pear, clove, green apple, and caramel. On the palate, aromas are complemented by a light touch of meyer lemon, graham cracker, and nutmeg. Incredibly food-friendly, the 2017 Highland Chardonnay is a perfect match for cream-sauced pastas, roast pork, and seafood.
