Carpe Diem 'Firepeak' Chardonnay


750 ML


Product Description

The Chardonnay is made from four different Chardonnay clones chosen for their dynamic flavor profile, cluster and berry size. On the nose, there is a bright bouquet of citrus evolving into flavors of pear, honey and apple notes. This steely wine has a creamy texture which is completed by a long rich finish. The wine is refined and elegant and has an ageing potential that will develop slowly.


Varietal: Chardonnay

Region: Edna Valley

Region Description:

Edna Valley is directly south of the coastal town of San Louis Obispo. The region was gained recognition in the 1970's for its chardonnay. Gew├╝rztraminer and pinot noir have been planted as well but the results have not been as rewarding as the chardonnay. Low hills on three sides give the valley an open cup shape that collects moisture laden air from the Pacific Ocean. The cool, steady temperatures and fog cover result in a very long growing season producing very unique wine.
