2018 Paraiso Vineyard Chardonnay
Santa Lucia Highlands
Our Paraiso single vineyard Chardonnay was aged 10 months on the stirred lees in 40% new French Oak barrels. This wine went through malolactic fermentation which softened the natural acidity and cultivated aromas of honeysuckle and vanilla. With soft flavors of perfume and violets, this wine has a rich mouthfeel balanced with a streak of citrus acidity.
This wine pairs beautifully with buttery scallops, halibut with cream sauce or barbecue chicken.
