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 terroir expression.

Hand sorted grapes were whole cluster pressed, preserving fruit flavors and natural acidity. The juice was barrel fermented in 28% new French oak, 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 quince are joined by Nilla Wafer and sea breeze. Those elements are echoed on the palate by green apple, crushed rock, and lemon curd. Malolactic fermentation adds a rounded mouthfeel to the wine’s fresh fruit and bright acidity.
