About This Wine:
The 2012 growing season followed a dry winter in Edna Valley. Temperatures were fairly typical through August with cool nights and mildly warm days. In September temperatures began to climb into the high 90s, which is unusual for Southern San Luis Obispo County. The strong diurnal coastal effect offset the hot days by cooling the vineyards to low temperatures at night allowing for longer hang-times and good flavor development.
- Blend 100% Chardonnay
- Barrel Regimen Aged 10 months in French oak, 30% new
The palate boasts an array of tropical and orchard fruits such as ripened pineapple, Asian pear, and white peach which are balanced by a strong backbone of acid. This wine is defined by its light touch - effortlessly balancing fresh fruit, light buttered notes, and bright acid.
Nestled into the rolling hills of the northwest corner of Edna Valley, Jespersen Ranch lies three miles from the Pacific Ocean and derives much of its personality from the coast. The growing season in Edna Valley is long and cool with early morning fog and mid-afternoon ocean breezes. The wines from Jespersen combine classic regional characteristics of delicate fruit and white pepper with hints of earth and consistently strong acid, characteristics unique to this property.
