Monterey county. Barrel fermented. 14.6% Alc. by vol. Anapamu means rising place in the Native American Chumash language. The Chumash people inhabited and revered the Central Coast region of California. Rising place refers to both the coastal hills and mountains surrounding the vineyards where our grapes are grown, and the growing reputation of Monterey wines. Our Anapamu Chardonnay combines juicy pear and vanilla spice with lush undertones of tropical fruit. These flavors are typical of a great monterey County Chardonnay, with elegant and richness imparted from the vineyards of this appellation.
