Featured Wine: Edna Valley Vineyard 2012 Central Coast Chardonnay

Nestled only five miles from the Pacific Ocean, Edna Valley Vineyard has one of the longest and coolest growing seasons in California. Its location in one of the state’s few east-west oriented valleys means coastal fog routinely moves inland, cooling the grapes after a long day in the sun.Edna This ideal climate allows the grapes to mature slowly while retaining their bright acidity. A distinct combination of ancient volcanic rock and marine sediment at Edna Valley Vineyard enriches the soil and contributes to the special character in their wines.


 Wine Profile:
Tasting Notes: Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay displays an attractive bouquet of quince, pineapple, white peach and apricot, with underlying notes of brown spice and vanilla. A fresh mouthfeel and a bright acidity combine to form a long, pleasing finish in this medium-bodied wine.
