Poseidon Vineyard

Begins with aromas of ripe pears, lemon curd and fresh, toasty biscuits. Taste honeydew melon, quince paste, ripe lemon, honey-grahams and pear tart. Pie spice, fresh butter and toasty brown pie crust on the finish. This has all the flavors that make rich Chardonnay drinkers cry, “YES!”  It’s a full-flavored Chardonnay with grace.

What the heck does Chardonnay with grace mean? California sunshine soaks the Estate vineyard after cool Carneros fog lifts just before lunchtime. Malolactic, lees aging and some new oak aging. There’s your full-flavor. As for grace, that comes from growing killer grapes, the acidity from the foggy mornings and skilled winemaking. Poseidon Vineyard brings it all, and at an awesome price.
