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: 

A very cool growing season allowed us to leisurely pick grapes over a long period of time. This cool weather allowed us to have many different wines picked at various levels of ripeness and flavor development, while maintaining ideal sugar levels. This gave us a diverse group of wines to blend from at our blending session.

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:: Lemon zest, white peaches, oyster shell, sea spray

Palate: Medium weight on the palate. Lemon thyme, chalk, freshly baked pie crust
