With each vintage of Highland Chardonnay, we showcase the unique attributes of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The 2022 cuvée includes 46% fruit from our certified organic Double L estate, with the balance from outstanding neighbors, including McIntyre and Tondré vineyards.

The grapes were hand picked and sorted in the vineyard. Whole cluster pressing preserved the fruit flavors with fresh acidity. Barrel fermentation occurred in 25% new French oak with native and cultured yeasts. Malolactic conversion ensured silky richness and a medium body.

This focused, elegant chardonnay’s aromas feature Bosc pear and Golden apple. On the palate, aromas are complemented by  lemon curd, baked apple, and a hint of butterscotch. Incredibly food-friendly, the Highland Chardonnay is a perfect match for cream-sauced pastas, roasted pork, and seafood.

"Very clean and round aromas of melon, white peach and orange blossom draw the nose into this bottling. The texture is chalky and the palate is quite savory with salt tones that decorate the baked nectarine and apple flavors."
- Matt Kettmann, November 2023
