Wine Choice du Jour: Carmel Road Liberated Chardonnay, Monteray 2012

Carmel Road Winery is located in the heart of Monterey County where the air is crisp and the tempo is relaxed and measured. Most mornings their sustainably grown vineyards are shrouded in fog. Most afternoons a brisk wind blows from the Monterey Bay southward along the ridge tops and benchlands of Salinas Valley delivering fresh, cool maritime air. For years this region was considered too cold and windy to grow world-class grapes. Today, Monterey boasts some of the most highly-acclaimed AVAs in all of California.

Since 1999 Carmel Road has been producing stunning Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from some of Monterey's finest benchland vineyards using innovative and sustainable farming and winemaking practice.

This Chardonnay was sourced primarily from the Clark Vineyard, certified sustainable by the SIP organization (Sustainability In Practice) since 2008. 2011 "Liberated" Chardonnay is 100% stainless steel fermented.

Hints of apricot, honeydew, light butter, touch of aci, great chiled on a hot day.
