Rancho Real Vineyard, Santa Maria Valley 

Our 2017 Chardonnay from the acclaimed Rancho Real Vineyard is composed of 100% clone 4 Chardonnay from a windy and west facing block in the patchwork that makes up Rancho Real. This vintage was fermented cool in stainless steel, racked once and aged in stainless steel for 5 months prior to bottling.   2017 was a cooler vintage with the exception of a heat spell around labor day resulting in a slightly more structured Chardonnay.  The wine was arrested prior to any Malolactic fermentation leaving the acidity fresh, lively and aromatic.  Aromatically, our Chardonnay is driven with fresh mango,  hazelnut, lemon grass, and an interesting spicy note with great minerality.  The flavor profile is lush with tropical flavors and a pleasing finish.
