2015 Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay
The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its twisted and gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement inland and seaward. The ocean’s influence on the Central Coast winegrowing region is significant, keeping coastal and inland valleys refreshingly cool, while preserving the grapes’ natural acidity and flavor. For Cypress Vineyards Chardonnay, the daily cooling air from the Pacific moves directly from Monterey Bay and down the appellations of the Salinas Valley, creating richly flavored Chardonnay with grapefruit, peach and tropical flavors. Harvesting and pressing in the vineyard at night ensures the preservation of these bright fruit characteristics and mouthwatering acidity.
