Beautiful ripe peach, star fruit and pink rose notes waft from this smooth and flavorful 2013 Central Coast Chardonnay. Flavors of tropical fruits, honey crisp apple, nectarine, honeydew melon and hints of sweet oak accent the soft, velvety texture and continue through a delicious, lingering round, bright finish.

Wine EnthusiastThe nose on this wine from nine vineyards ranging from Santa Clara to Santa Barbara reflects much of what the large appellation offers, but in subtle ways: touches of Golden Delicious apples, grilled pineapple, toasted coconut and chalk. The flavors surround a Meyer lemon zest tension, with apple flesh fruits and a zesty acidity that holds throughout without biting.
