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: 

2019 was a mild growing season with a small moderate heat push toward the end of the growing season. That warmth really pushed fruit into a beautiful ripeness at the end, without pushing things too far. We can look forward to generous fruit in the wines along with great balance.

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: Toasted hazelnuts, honey, hint of vanilla

Palate:  Saline, honey figs, aged Gouda, Asian pear. Medium weight with slight chalkiness. Energetic acidity is woven in perfectly giving this wine a pleasant, lasting finish.
