Special Selection — Gold Medal Wine Club
Arroyo Seco, Monterey AVA
100% Chardonnay
10 months in oak

The Ranch 32 2016 Estate Grown Chardonnay hails from two sustainably farmed estate vineyards on the western shelf of the Salinas Valley below the Santa Lucia Mountains. The climate here is heavily influenced by the cool afternoon winds that sweep down the Salinas Valley off the Monterey Bay. With nutrient-rich soils, this is renowned terroir for both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Bright, crisp, and balanced, the Ranch 32 2016 Chardonnay captures the distinct personality of the Arroyo Seco AVA. The nose delivers notes of pear, citrus, tropical fruit and toasted vanilla beans, while the palate offers rich and concentrated flavors of pineapple, butterscotch, and fresh minerality. This versatile wine can be served as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to your favorite seafood dishes.
