About This Item

Overview: The maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean creates morning fog and afternoon winds: an ideal climate for the production of world-class Burgundian varietals. This “stream of winds” directly aects the Sarmento Vineyard, which is located in the prestigious Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey. The soil is well-drained loamy sand with many fist-sized cobblestones.

Windstream Chardonnay comes only from the best lots that our estate vineyards have to offer. Small lots are picked and fermented individually with minimal intervention to allow the true expression of the soil and climate. The wines are matured in a unique selection of hand-crafted 95% French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes: Windstream Chardonnay is a luscious, structured wine with intense flavors of ripe pear and green apple. Barrel fermentation contributes nuances of oak spice and honey, while malolactic fermentation creates a round mouthfeel with a supple, creamy texture.

Pairing: Windstream Chardonnay pairs very well with polenta, veal, or grilled seafood.
