Winemaker Notes
This Chardonnay was tank-fermented in stainless steel without oak aging. Unoaked Chardonnay allows the wine to express its character and subtleties without the masking effect of oak. This process also preserves the freshness and acidity of the wine, creating a versatile and food-friendly libation.
Vineyard Notes
The Chula Viña Vineyard is located on a protected bench in the eastern hills overlooking the Salinas Valley. While the cooling fog keeps Chula Viña from ripening too quickly, its protected location assures the strong ocean-influenced winds do not stunt the vines’ progress. In combination with the warm afternoon sun, these factors provide a setting for the growth of stunning fruit.
