The Double L Vineyard is well situated to produce Chardonnay of the highest caliber. Located near the northern tip of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, the vineyard receives morning fog and brisk afternoon breezes from nearby Monterey Bay. North-south vineyard row orientation allows for optimum sun exposure on the Highlands’ east - facing terraces. Wind and sun combine for a long, cool growing season, resulting in vibrant fruit flavors with balanced acidity. The vineyard was certified organic in 2002, though it has been conscientiously farmed in this method since the original plantings in 1997.
Lemon curd, baking spices, and caramel aromas are echoed on the palate by meyer lemon and salted butter toffee. One of the finest food wines, the Double L Chardonnay will pair wonderfully with seafood and poultry dishes, as well as a buttery steak.
