Homestead fruit from 40+ year old vineyards in the cool microclimate of the Monterey Mountains has yielded a quintessential Monterey Chardonnay, one we have produced since 1978. After a full malolactic fermentation, the wine gives off tropical fruit aromas and ripe varietal flavors that are balanced by the crisp acidity prized by wineries throughout the state.
