2018 Madson Chardonnay 'Les Enfants du Soleil'

2018 Madson Chardonnay 'Les Enfants du Soleil'
Santa Cruz Mountains, California

This Santa Cruz Mountains AVA Chardonnay is sourced from PM Staiger Vineyard (66%) and Toyon Vineyard (34%). PM Staiger Vineyard was planted in the late 60’s on Decomposed Monterey Schist soils outside of Boulder Creek. This own-rooted, old vineyard produces wines that have depth, vivacity and minerality.
Toyon Vineyard was planted on a melange of siltstone and sandstone in the Soquel Hills. Only 480 feet above the Monterey Bay, this vineyard is impacted by fog and cool ocean winds. The wines from Toyon Vineyard showcase bright acidity and a fresh ocean air salinity. The cuvée from these two vineyards shows all the depth and concentration of cool climate Chardonnay, with textural mineral components and immense energy on the palate. 140 cases produced.

TASTING NOTES
This wine begins with bright aromatics of orange blossom, jasmine, and baking spice. The palate continues with a crisp chalky, salinity. Fruit flavors of white peach and green apple come through in the finish. Pair with seafood.
