Domaine Alfred 'Chamisal' Chardonnay


750 ML


Product Description

Whereas our Estate chardonnay bottling is an harmonic orchestral symphony , the 2006 Califa offers a focused profile of Chamisal spiced fruit. Imagine a parfait of freshly baked coconut macaroons, grilled pineapple and creamy cherimoya custard. To be enjoyed now or in the next few years, this wine is seamless.


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.
