Monterey’s cooling fog and coastal breezes create an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay, yielding wines with tantalizing tropical notes and crisp acidity. The core of this wine comes from Hess's 352-acre Shirtail Creek estate vineyard in Monterey’s coastal valley.
Aromas of pineapple and green apple are followed on the palate by crisp citrus flavors. Medium-bodied and refreshing, this wine has a rich mid-palate, with just a hint of oak toast. Well-balanced acidity gives this wine a clean, crisp mouthfeel, with a zesty, fruit-forward finish.
