The name of this vineyard says it all, situated at 1200' elevation just inland a few miles from Pacific Ocean, Oyster shell and sea spray are joined with notes of lemon zest and white peach pie. 

 

Vintage Notes: 

The 2017 vintage began with significant rainfall prior to bloom, refilling the state’s reservoirs and ending California’s five-year drought. We saw a sudden spike in temperatures just prior to harvest,
leading fruit to ripen quicker than anticipated. This sped up our harvest schedule, but due to our team’s vigilance, the fruit was still able to be picked at optimal ripeness. Temperatures then cooled back down
by mid-September, allowing the remaining vineyards to complete ripening at an ideal pace. The rest of harvest was finished as planned, with yields coming in at their typical levels

Vineyard Notes: 

Perched along the Annapolis mountain range along the Pacific Coast, the Tidal Break vineyard rests 1200 feet above sea level sitting just along the fog line. Only 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the young
Chardonnay vines enjoy a pronounced fog influence allowing a long hang time on the vine.

Wine Profile: 

Aromas:: Caramelized pears, grated ginger
Palate: Fresh lemon balm, dried white tea leaves, spring peas
