Golden 2018 Chardonnay Monterey County

Description

Sophisticated balance of fruit, mineral, oak, and acid. No heat or overwhelming richness. The fruit and acid are at the forefront with bright pineapple, peach, and star fruit. The minerality lingers on the mid-palate and finish, where there is what we describe as a river rock character. Subtle oak grounds the flavors by adding a soft vanilla bean nuttiness, like the perfect crust of a meringue pie. 

Based in Carmel Valley in the middle of the California coast, we believe that Monterey County is one of the great Chardonnay and Pinot Noir growing regions of the world. The perfect cool climate with warm days and strong maritime influence, Monterey Chardonnay is unique in it’s tropical fruit, minerality, and bright acid.

Grapes for Golden Chardonnay were hand-picked into half ton bins and sorted by hand at Folktale Winery.The grapes were softly pressed in our bladder press. The wine is aged for six months in one and two-year-old Folktale Winery French Oak barrels, which rounds and softens the texture of the wine.  Clean, balanced, and perfect with food or chilled on it’s own, Golden exemplifies why Chardonnay is Monterey gold.
