    A complex nose dancing between toasted hazelnut and saline oyster shell notes; spiced pear, autumn barley and crushed rock. A very mineral driven style, very Chablis like. It has a keen acid line and verve to it; great for Dungeness crab I imagine (I'll have to test it out)! Such a stunning value for Santa Cruz Mountain Chardonnay. Hand-selected from a patchwork of small, local vineyards around the appellation skillfully and seamlessly woven together by winemaker Colin McNany.
    Top Value!

    Winemaker Colin McNany has crafted a gem in this 2015 Santa Cruz Mountain Chardonnay, which opens with notes of dried pineapple, orange blossom, papaya and tangerine skin, and displays a clean, dry palate with bright acidity that balances the viscosity and adds a fresh element. The fruit is sourced from three vineyards: Saratoga, Woodside and Los Altos Hills, each of which lend unique characteristics to the wine. Overall this is a beautifully crafted Chardonnay, and a great value that will appeal to those who appreciate balance and a sense of terroir.

    La Honda Winery has access to some very small and exclusive vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains and I relished the opportunity to taste wine from vineyards no one else has can utilize. This is a great balance between bright and fresh flavors, with a nice acid line form the partial malolactic fermentation, and just enough richness, texture, and depth from the oak use. The Santa Cruz Mountains are fast gaining recognition for their sophisticated Chardonnays and La Honda is no exception. It's amazing to have such tasty wines in our own backyard and at such an affordable price.
