Originally planted in 1973, McIntyre Vineyard boasts some of the oldest vines in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Owner Steve McIntyre is one of the originators of the SIP (Sustainable in Practice) Certification Program, combining his conscientious farming techniques with the property’s coastal influence to grow grapes with complex expression of terroir.  

Hand sorted grapes were whole cluster pressed, preserving fruit flavors and natural acidity. The juice was barrel fermented with native yeast in 100% French oak (29% new), followed by nine months of barrel aging.

In the glass, the McIntyre Vineyard Chardonnay displays a beautiful light straw hue. On the nose, aromas of lemon curd are joined by subtle jasmine and baking spices. Those elements are echoed on the palate by baked apple and subtle hazelnut. Malolactic fermentation adds a rounded mouthfeel to the wine’s tropical fruit and bright acidity.
