2019 CHARDONNAY
of Redwood Royalty  
SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS

$39


The preeminent Bald Mountain Vineyard is owned and organically farmed by the Beauregard family in the Ben Lomond Mountain sub- AVA of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Planted in 1990 to 33 acres of chardonnay and seven acres of pinot noir, it sits at 1,000 feet on a southwest facing slope and is surrounded by giant redwoods. The cool climate and white, sandy Zayante soils translate to wines with intense energy and linear structure. Pioneers of Santa Cruz Mountains winegrowing, the Beauregards are close friends and Redwood Royalty.

Straw color and light-medium bodied. Aromas of citrus blossom, green apple, yuzu, and sea spray are supported by flavors of quince, pear skin, and subtle baking spice. Less floral and more mineral than the Spear chardonnay, this wine is much more Chablis than Côte d’Or in character.
