Winemaker Tasting Notes: Taking its name from the sea and sun – the two forces of nature that shape its exotic character – this wine is as dramatic as the place where it is sourced. With morning fog, bright sunshine and gusting winds, the Santa Lucia Highlands (40 minutes south from Monterey, California) has an extended growing season. Grapes stay on the vine longer, leading to the development of intense aromas such as custard and toasted almonds, rich fruit flavors and enlivening lemon/lime.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
This wine is produced by Charlie Wagner, the oldest son of Chuck Wagner who founded Caymus along with his parents Lorna and Charlie Wagner.
