Dovecote's Estate Chardonnay was planted in 1990 on its own roots to the coveted Wente clone. Alisos Canyon's cool ocean influence extends ripening and preserves acidity for a clean, crisp, expression of this full bodied varietal. To preserve it's natural freshness and energy, the wine is made using 100% stainless steel with no oak and or malolactic fermentation.
This Chardonnay from our Estate Thompson Vineyard yields beautiful notes of lemon zest, asian pears, and fresh cut pineapple. It has a round supple mouthfeel and finishes clean with bright acidity that can elevate a wide variety of cuisine.
