2008 Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay

The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement either inland or seaward. The ocean’s influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool, while preserving the grape’s natural acidity and flavor. For Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay, the daily cooling air from the Pacific moves directly from Monterey Bay and down the Monterey appellations of the Salinas Valley, creating richly flavored Chardonnay fruit with grapefruit and other citrus flavors paired with peach and tropical flavors. Harvesting and pressing in the vineyard at night ensures the preservation of these bright fruit flavors.

Winemaker's Comments

The 2008 Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay is a youthful, pale yellow in color with lime, white hyacinth, pear and baked apple aromas.  It has lively fruit flavors of lime, nectarine and pear with hints of vanilla and grilled nuts.  The refreshing acidity and silky palate texture, combined with the bright fruit aromas and flavors make it an ideal accompaniment to roasted chicken or Fettuccine Alfredo.
